Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

New Price is $27 Original price was $38

Percentage increse is difference between the two prices expressed as a percentage of the original price

In our case, the new price is the one being adjusted to become the old price and so the original price now is $27 and the new price is $38


Increase = 38-27

=11

Expressing 11 as a percentage of the original 27 gives us 11/28

= 0.392857143 

Converting to a percentage gives

0.392857143  x 100

39.2857%

Round of to two decimals

= 39.29%

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
