9-113.

If Mike thinks he will hit 50% more, this means he will hit the same number of homers he hit on Earth (76) plus half (50%) of that same number. The total number could be represented as one and a half of 76 or 150% of 76.

You can find what number is half of 76 and then add this to 76 to find Mike's predicted number of home runs on Mars.
