Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In these types of questions, you're always looking for something called 'relative difference' and it's *defined* like this:\[\frac{(final)(initial)}{(initial)}\]where 'final' and 'initial' are the final and initial values respectively. You have\[\frac{1018}{18}=\frac{4}{9} =0.4444....\]To get percent, you multiply it by 100%;\[\frac{4}{9} \times 100 \approx 44.44\]percent.
