86%

Step-by-step explanation:

just follow the rbp rules when finding the rate of the increase just divide the base in the percentage so the solution is 73÷85 so the answer is 86%

Increase rate = [85 - 73) ÷ 73] × 100

Increase rate = [(12/73] × 100

Increase rate = (0.1644) × 100

ANSWER: 16.44%[(85 - 73)/73] × 100%

[12/73] × 100%

1, 200%/73

16.44% or 16%
