    per cent of decrease/increase

    Does the sentence below convey that the percentage of increase is 22%?

    The tensile strength increased by 22%.


    Thanks

    P.S. I apologize for the title :(

    Please use standard punctuation. If you want to use an emoticon, a fine selection is available via the icon.

    I have corrected the thread title for you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
