# Arun bought a car for ₹ 3,50,000. The next year, the price went upto ₹ 3,70,000. What was the percentage of price increase?

**Solution:**

Increase in price = 3,70,000 – 3,50,000 = 20000

Percentage increase = (Change in quantity / Initial quantity) × 100

= (20000 / 350000) × 100

= 200 / 35

= 5 5/7%
