Hi Melissa,


The short answer is Yes, it is within 5%.  To prove/solve, first figure out the difference between 6149.10 and 6265.10, which is 116.  Then divide 116 by 6149.10, 116/6149.10 = 0.0188.  This of course is a fraction; to express it as a percentage, simply move the decimal over two places to the right.  So the difference between these numbers is approx 1.88%.  Hope this helps!

Hi, Melissa.

Before you can answer this question, you have to first calculate 5% of 6149.10.
According to my calculator, 5% of 6149.10 is 307.455.
To find the range of 5%, you add/subtract 307.455 to/from 6149.10.

6149.10 - 307.455 = 5841.645
6149.10 + 307.455 = 6456.555

Since 6265.10 lies between 5841.645 and 6456.555, we say that the answer is YES.
