**[SOLVED] Simple Momentum problem**

A particle initially has a speed of 0.47c.

(a) At what speed does its momentum increase by 1%?

.4747c

(b) At what speed does its momentum increase by 10%?

____c

(c) At what speed does its momentum increase by 100%?

____c

To get the answer for part a, i just multiplied the speed by 1.01. I assumed that I would do the same, except 1.1 and 2 for parts b and c respectively, but the answers are not right. I have a feeling I'm just missing something but can't quite figure out what it is.
