Assignment Expert12.12.16, 12:31At 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.

Sakhile08.12.16, 08:12Where do you get the 1.6

Assignment Expert05.08.14, 18:49Because we do not calculate 15 percents out of 45, we regard 45 as amount of 15 percents and find the amount of 100 percents.

bshayer23.07.14, 05:09why did u put 45*100/15 instead of 45*15/100? and from where did you get the 1.6?

Assignment Expert12.05.14, 15:07Dear Julia

You’re absolutely right, thanks for correcting us!

Julia12.05.14, 12:30But 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
