Solution

20%

Explanation:

Let the sum be x and 2x

Case I

A = `"x"[1-100/700]^2=(36"x")/49`

Case II

A = `"2x"[1+20/100]^2=(72"x")/25`

Total A`=(36"x")/49+(72"x")/25`

Increase`=(36"x")/49+(72"x")/25-3"x"`

Increase`=(25xx36"x"+49xx72"x"-3"x"xx49xx25"x")/(49xx25)`

`=(753"x")/(49xx25)`

% increase`=(753"x")/(49xx25xx3"x")xx100`
= 20% approx
