There are a few ways you can find what 800 increased by 30 percent is.

1) You can find 30% of 800 by multiplying 800 with 0.3 and then adding the two together.

2) you can just multiply 800 by 1.3 and directly get the answer.

With these two, you should know that to convert a percentage into a decimal, you move the decimal point two spots over (123.4% = 1.234)

3) If you don't have a calculator, you can find an easy percentage and multiply it so you get 30% (for example: 10% of 800 = 80. 10% times 3 = 30% so 80 times 3 = 240. Therefore, 30% of 800 is 240.)

In any case, the answer would be 1040.
