I have no idea how to work this problem. Someone show me how to please

Hi Elizabeth,

In order to solve this problem we would first need to find out what 17% of the original value is in dollars. This can be found by:

- 650 x (17/100) = 650 x 0.17 = $110.5

What this is telling us, is that the original investment has increased by $110.5. Therefore our final answer will be:

- 650 + 110.5 =
**$760.5**

Hope this helps!
