Dear Student,

Given : Jasmine invests £ 250 in a building society. After the first year her account contains £262.50.

a ) We calculate the percentage increase of the amount in her account during the first year, As :

Change in amount = £ 262.50 - £ 250 = £ 12.50

Then,

Percentage increase of the amount in her account during the first year =              ( Ans )

Also given : After the second year it contains £280.88.

b ) We calculate the percentage increase of the amount in her account during the second year, As :

Change in amount for second year  = £ 280.88 - £ 262.50 = £ 18.38

Then,

Percentage increase of the amount in her account during the second year =              ( Ans )

) We calculate the percentage increase of the amount in her account over two years, As :

Change in amount for over two years  = £ 280.88 - £ 250 = £ 30.88

Then,

Percentage increase of the amount in her account during the over two years =              ( Ans )
