Answer

There will be 285 students enrolled in the program.

Work Step by Step

Let X represent the amount of students that will be enrolled in the university after the 14% increase. A guideline for this problem would be: After increase enrollment = Before increase enrollment + Increase in enrollment So, X = 250 + 14% $\times$ 250 So, X = 250 + .14 $\times$ 250 X = 250 + 35 X = 285 There will be 285 students enrolled in the program.
