Student or Learner
I have to translate a text from English into my native language and I'm trying to figure out the meaning of this sentence: The earnings increased 25 % to 20 million $ dollars in 2005. I wanna know what to means in this sentence. Does it mean that the earnings increased 25 % which equals to 20 million$? Or maybe the earnings inreased 25 % and became 20 million $. Which of assumptions is correct?
Thanks in advance
The previous earnings were $16 million. They increased (by) 25% [= $4million] to the 2005 total of $20 million.
oops. I didn't notice that bhai had got there first.
Yeah, 5jj, but you did the math.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
