In 1997 tuition was 9,000 dollars.

In 1998 tuition was 10,000 dollars.

From 1997 to 1998 tuition increased 1,000 dollars.

 

In 1996 tuition was 8,500 dollars.

In 1997 tuition was 9,000 dollars.

From 1996 to 1998 tuition increased 500 dollars.

 

Is the increase from 1997 to 1998 twice as much as the increase from 1996 to 1998?

Is 1,000 twice as much as 500?

 

Yes, so it is a valid claim to say tuition increased twice as much from 1997 to 1998 as it did from 1996 to 1997.
