Answer:The answer to the question is

The number of measles cases is 1.083 times the number of cases it was in 2000

Step-by-step explanation:The number of measles cases increased by 8.3% since 2000

This means that an extra 8.3 percentage cases has been recorded since 2000

That is for every 100 there is an additional 8.3 cases or 108.3 cases compared to 100 recorded in 2000

Dividing the 108.3 by the original 100 to find the number of increase per case, we have

108.3/100 = 1.083 increase per case

That is the number of measles cases is times 1.083 the number of cases it was in 2000

Answer:The number of measles cases is 1.083 times what it was in 2000

Step-by-step explanation:This is simply about stating an increase by 8.3% since 2000 in another way. Thus, when there is no increase, this means that the value in 2000 will be the same as that now and the ratio will be 1.

However an 8.3% increase since 2000 would mean the current number of measles cases will be 1.083 times the number it was in 2000.
