    Answer:

    Approximately 28 millions of adults can be expected to cut the cord next year

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Percentages

    If a quantity has a value of V and it’s incremented by X%, the new value is  

    V+increment

    the increment is

    [tex]\displaystyle V\frac{ X}{100}[/tex]

    Thus, the new value is

    [tex]\displaystyle V+V\frac{ X}{100}[/tex]

    [tex]\displaystyle =V\left(1+\frac{ X}{100}\right)[/tex]

    We know 23.1 million adults have cut the cord on cable TV services and that value increases by 20% each year, thus for the next year it can be expected to be

    [tex]\displaystyle =23.1 \left(1+\frac{ 20}{100}\right)=27.72\approx 28[/tex]

    28 millions of adults can be expected to cut the cord next year
