# The amount \$180.00 is what percent greater than \$135.00?

A. 35%

Hi

We’ll let the percentage=p
Therefore
\$180 = \$135 x p
180/135 = p
p = 1.3333…

So \$180 is 133.33% of \$135

However! The question is asking what percent greater than \$135 is it, so the answer is B. 33.33% (because the 100% is the first \$135 of the \$180 and the 33.33% is the other \$45)

It is 33.33% greater. 180 divided by 135 equals 133.33 minus 100% equals 33.33%.

Pink Floyd. Rick Wright put out 2 solo albums and is working on a third. Syd Barrett put out 5. Gilmour did 3 and is working on another. Waters has 6 and even Nick Mason has 2 and wrote a book. While they all didn’t leave, they did go on to have separate solo careers. edit: hey sarah

let us try one by one
a: 35% = 0.35
0.35*180 = 63
180-63 = 117 not greter than \$135.00
than a is wrong

b: 33.33% = 0.3333
0.3333*180=59.994
180 – 59.994 = 120.006 not grater than \$135.00
than b is wrong

c: 75% = 0.75
0.75*180=135 is equal to \$135.00
than c wrong

d: 133.33% =1.3333
1.3333*180 = 239.994 is grater than \$135.00
than d is right
