1. The percentage increase in average commute times between these years = 2.25%

### Calculation of percentage increase

In 2010, the average commute time for wake county workers = 23.9 mins
In 2016, the average commute time for wake county workers = 25 mins.
The increase is = 25- 23.9 = 1.1
The average commute time between the two years,
23.9+25 = 48.9 mins
Therefore, the percentage,
= 1.1/48.9×100
= 110/48.9
= 2.249%
= 2.25% to the nearest two decimal places.
