    Answer:

    43.64%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The percent increase in the number of acres owned by the farmer is given by the difference between the final acreage and initial acreage divided by the initial acreage and multiplied by 100.

    Initial acreage = 346

    Final acreage = 497

    \%= \frac{(497-346)}{346}*100\\\%= 43.64

    The farmer increased his number of acres of land owned by 43.64%
