3200-2400=800, number of increase from last year

800/2400=1/3=33%

So the approximate percent increase in participation was 33%

can you show me how you did the division portion and arrived to the 33%..

800/2400, cancel out 2 zeros you get 8/24, simplify you get 1/3, use calculator, you get 0.3333, so answer is approximately 33.3% or you can write 33%
