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
