Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[{{new  old} \over old} * 100\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The general formula for percent change is as follows: \[\% \Delta = \frac{ab}{a} \times100\] where a = original amount, b = new amount In this case, a = 18 , b = 10 Plug the numbers in and solve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I said it already if it's not 80 then is it 44.4 repeating

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's not 80. Never was, never will be. How you got 80 perplexes me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok that's what I though but then the first one you didn't make sense

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I posted the same exact formula. Nothing changed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't say what I wrote doesn't make sense. It's not me that isn't making sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the first answer was 33.3 repeating or 25 as you said

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just 25% not 33 Do you understand what the absolute value symbols mean?

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 means x = x In other words 5 = 5 So basically, when you evaluate using the absolute value, you drop the negative and use only the positive value. How you're getting two values...I don't know. Don't pay attention to that other guy's formula. It will only confuse you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It was 15 to 20 2015 is 5 5*100 500/15 is 33.3

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05/20 = 1/4 = 25% That's the solution to the first one. You're doing some incorrect math there. In the first one, a = 15, b = 20 a = the original amount, b = new amount 15 is the original amount, 20 is the new amount Don't confuse yourself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to divide before multiplying by 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok I'll just go with your answer and when we check it in class tomorrow I'll just see

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, and make sure you get back to me when you find that 25% is the correct answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm, I just checked my own answer. It really is 33.3%

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I take my foot out of my mouth. You are correct

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hero! What rubbish are you posting here? If x = x IFF x<= 0 Otherwise, x = x if x>=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd rather define it as x = x if x<0 and x = x if x>=0
