A diver can hold his breath for two minutes under water. After practicing for a week, he can hold his breath for 5% longer. How long will he be able to hold his breath after the first week of practice?
2.1 minutes.
0.1 minutes.
2.01 minutes.
3.0 minutes.
Detailed Explanation
First, calculate 5% of 2: 2 × 0.05 = 0.1
Then, add this increase to the amount of time the diver could originally hold his breath:
2 + 0.1 = 2.1 minutes
