1 is 100%
0.26 = 26%

1+0.26 = 126% = increase by 26%

Why can't you just let people post right answers without you complaining of the precision of their response? Stop being such a dunce.

I don't think you've got the right answer yet mate, it's: 1.26.

Firstly, I thought I'd explain it further than just saying "the answer is 1.26" because the OP is confused obviously.
Secondly, I didn't use the exact number 26% because there's a posting guidelines if you haven't noticed.
posting of full solutions should be considered a last resort

What's wrong with providing a different answer to others? There's obviously other methods to utilise in order to achieve the same answer so why should you have a go at her just because she wants to be different???

If we kept on having a go at people and stop them from being different, we aren't exactly going to move forward are we but instead just follow each other like bloody sheeps!
