    There is a 15.9% increase in the price.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    New price = $3.65

    Old price = $3.15

    Difference = New price – Old price

    Difference = 3.65 – 3.15 = $0.50

    The positive sign indicates the increase

    Percent\ increase=\frac{Differece}{Old\ value}*100\\\\Percent\ increase=\frac{0.50}{3.15}*100\\\\Percent\ increase=\frac{50}{3.15}\\\\Percent\ increase=15.87\%

    Rounding off to nearest tenth

    Percent increase = 15.9%

    There is a 15.9% increase in the price.
