___ Increased by 130% is 69

\(x \cdot \dfrac{130}{100} = 69\\ x = 69 \dfrac{100}{130} = \dfrac{690}{13} \approx 53.077\)

Hey Rom..... that is only a 30% increase......

The answer will be the value of x in the following:

x + (130% times x) = 69 increased by 130% means add another 130% to itself

x + 1.3x = 69 note that 130% = 1.3

2.3x = 69

x = 69/2.3

x = 30
