I work it out as:

100 increased by 17% is 117

100 increased by 15% is 115

117 is 2 greater than 115 = 2/115 * 100 = a 1.739% (3 decimal places only) increase. We could say that it is roughly 1.01739 times as big if this is what you mean.

Prove that 10 percent increase followed by 10 percent decrease is equivalent to 1 percent increase?

- In order to increase a quantity by 10%, you multiply it by 1.1.- In order to decrease a quantity by 10%, you multiply it by 0.9.Starting out with a quantity of 100, we want to increase it 10%, and then decrease THE RESULT by 10%.(100) x (1.1) = 110(110) x (0.9) = 99The ending quantity is 99.The hypothesis of the question is exactly backwards. The net result is a 1-percent DECREASE.

How can you prove fifty percent liability if you the police report says you are 100 percent at fault?

Liablity decisions are not based solely on the police report. Your insurance adjuster should investigate every aspect of the loss. If you want to provide details of the accident perhaps I could assist you with this. In short, how you prove fifty percent, is just that you (your adjuster) must prove that the other party contributed to this accident. Just because the police report says 100% does not mean that the claim will be settled that way.
