School enrollments have fluctuated quite a bit in Oregon this year. The state department of education predicted there would be 300,000 students enrolled state-wide. The enrollment ended up being 375,000. How much of a percentage increase over the projected amount is this?

A A 25% increase in the projected amount.
Explaination
To compute for percentage increase (or decrease), use the formula: Percentage increase: $3923_w296_h39.png$ $6995_w374_h43.png$ TIP: If you don't like memorizing formulas, just remember to get the increase, then divide by the original number: $5688_w307_h43.png$ When you need your answer to be expressed as percentage, simply multiply it by 100: 0.25 x 100 = 25\%
B A 15% increase in the projected amount.
C A 10% increase in the projected amount.
D A 20% increase in the projected amount.
