How many students seeking help? "students seeking help for mental health grew from 2011 to 2016 at five times the rate of new students starting college." From above mentioned, if new students starting college is 100, then, students seeking help for mental health would be 100x5, is that right?

No. The rate of growth was 5 times higher, not the total number. 2011: total students: 100; students seeking help: 20 2016: total students: 101; students seeking help: 21 percentage growth in students=((101-100)/100)*100=1% percentage growth in students seeking help=((21-20)/20)*100=5% So, the rate of increase for students seeking help was 5 times higher than the rate of increase for the entire college.
