# Solve the following increase or decrease problems for the unknown. Round decimals to hundredths and percents to the nearest tenth.820 increased by 400%=_________

To determine

To fill: The blank provided for the statement, “820 increased by 400%=_____________”.

Explanation

Given Information:

The expression is, “820 increased by 400%”.

Consider that the original value or the base is 820 and rate of increase is 400%.

As the rate of change is an increase, so add that change to 100% so as to compute the rate,

R=100%+400%=500%

Here, portion is missing.

The formula to compute portion is P=B×R
