Your question was – The price of 1 kg of beans was $15 in the month of June. The price of beans increased to $17 by the month of July. Calculate the percentage increase in the cost of beans from June to July.

Right?

It’s a very easy question for me please read my explanation of your question for better understanding.

According to the question,

Price of 1kg of beans in the month of June = $15

Price of 1kg of beans in the month of July = $17

Total increase in the price of beans from June till July in terms of $ = $2

We have to increase in terms of percentage.

Let this value be ‘x’.

∴ x% of 15 = 2

∴ 15 * x/100 = 2

∴ 15 * x = 100 * 2 = 200

∴ x = 200/15

∴ x = 13.33
