To find the percent increase, subtract the initial value from the final value, then divide by the initial value, and multiply by 100.

Percent increase = ((Final value - Initial value) / Initial value) * 100

Percent increase = ((49 - 19) / 19) * 100

Percent increase ≈ (30 / 19) * 100 ≈ 1.578 * 100 ≈ 157.89%

Rounded to the nearest percent, the percent increase is approximately 158%.
