27.32.7%

28. 21.3%

29. 16.6%

Step-by-step explanation:25.

Initial number of students= 30

Additional students=5

Current number of students= 30+5=35

percent increase= increase/initial number *100

% increase= 5/30 *100 =50/3 =16.7%

26.

Initial January price was $2.05 per dozen

In February the price changed to $2.00 per dozen

Decrease in price= $2.05-$2.00 = $0.05

% decrease in price= 0.05/2.05 *100 =2.4%

27.

Original price of share= $196

New price of share=$132

Decrease in value of share= $64

%decrease = 64/196 *100 =32.7%

28.

Original cost of operation per month was=$21840

New cost of operation per month is =$17190

Decrease in cost of operation is = $21840 – $17190 =$4650

% decrease in cost of operation= 4650/21840 *100 =21.3%

29.

Circulation in September was =157,928

Circulation in October is= 184,211

% increase in circulation = 26283/157928*100=16.6%
