    Answer:

    124.8 %

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given,

    Initial percentage of working students = 14.1%,

    Final percentage of working students = 31.7%,

    Thus, the percentage increase = \frac{\text{Final percentage-initial percentage}}{\text{Initial percentage}}\times 100

    =\frac{31.7 - 14.1}{14.1}\times 100

    =\frac{17.6}{14.1}\times 100

    =\frac{1760}{14.1}

    124.8 %
