15 <var id="YEAR_LAST">round(YEAR_THIS * 10000 / (100 + YEAR_PERCENT_MORE)) / 100</var>

17 <p class="question">
18 <var>person(1)</var> has <var>YEAR_PERCENT_MORE</var>% more money today than <var>he(1)</var> did this time last year. If <var>person(1)</var> has $<var>YEAR_THIS</var> today, how much money did <var>he(1)</var> make over this past year? (Round to the nearest cent, or hundredth of a dollar.)</p>
19 <p class="solution" data-forms="dollar" data-max-error="0.01"><var>round((YEAR_THIS - YEAR_LAST) * 100) / 100</var></p>
20 <div class="hints">
21 <p>Let <code>x</code> be the amount of money that <var>he(1)</var> had last year.</p>
22 <p><code>x + <var>YEAR_PERCENT_MORE / 100</var>x = $<var>YEAR_THIS</var></code></p>
23 <p><code><var>(100 + YEAR_PERCENT_MORE) / 100</var>x = $<var>YEAR_THIS</var></code></p>
24 <p><code>x = \dfrac{$<var>YEAR_THIS</var>}{<var>(100 + YEAR_PERCENT_MORE) / 100</var>}</code></p>
25 <p><code>x = $<var>YEAR_LAST</var></code> (rounding to the nearest penny in this step)</p>
26 <p>So, <var>he(1)</var> had $<var>YEAR_LAST</var> last year, but we want to know how much <var>he(1)</var> has made <b>over the past year!</b></p>
27 <p><code>\text{money made over the past year} = \text{amount of money today} - \text{amount of money last year}</code></p>
28 <p><code>\qquad =$<var>YEAR_THIS</var>-$<var>YEAR_LAST</var></code></p>
29 <p><code>\qquad \approx $<var>round((YEAR_THIS - YEAR_LAST) * 100) / 100</var></code>
30 <p>So, the answer is $<var>round((YEAR_THIS - YEAR_LAST) * 100) / 100</var>.</p>
