Old brain can't get around this one today....its really basic, I'm pretty embarrassed.
EUR2,681 for 2008
It has increased to:
EUR4,835 for 2010
Whats the percentage increase from 2008 to 2010?
Hoping for a swift reply, without too much laughter!
Thank you Archie,
I'm on really old methods:
"Cross multiply and divide by the one opposite the question mark"
But, my problem was which figure to take as the 100% starting point, which you have so clearly explained is the initial amount.
This, compounded with the fact that (if I've done it right) the answer is just over an 80% increase on the insurance in 2 years, unsurprisingly made me doubt my answer.
And now, I have the difficult task of debating this with the insurance company.
