At first there were 100% of heavy lifters, then company increased its fleet by 60% and we got 160%. Number 1.6 is a decimal form of 160%. Numbers are essential, because actual values are calculated.

Where do you get the 1.6

Because we do not calculate 15 percents out of 45, we regard 45 as amount of 15 percents and find the amount of 100 percents.

why did u put 45*100/15 instead of 45*15/100? and from where did you get the 1.6?

Dear Julia
You’re absolutely right, thanks for correcting us!

But it's not the correct answer!
The answer is:
sum in current year=(45*100)/15=300
sum next year=300*1,6=480
sum of Factory A and B next year=480*0,2+480*0,35=264
Answer: 264 lifters
