A hat store sells 900 hats in its first year. If the number of hats it sells in the next year is 50% higher, how many hats will it sell in its second year?

1 Answer

  • Answer: 1,350 hats

    Step-by-step explanation: First, it's important to understand that 50% is equivalent to the fraction 1/2.

    So, the next year that hat store will sell 1/2 more hats.

    First, we need to divide 900 by 2 which gives us 450.

    Now, we simply add 450 to to the number of hats the store sold the first year.

    450 + 900 = 1,350

    This means that the hat store will sell 1,350 hats the next year.
