The number of shopper at a Fort Myers flea market ranges from an average of 55,000 per weekend during the tourist season to an average of 18,000 on a summer weekend. What is the percent of decrease, to the nearest whole number, in the number of shoppers at the flea market from the tourist season to a summer weekend?
A. 18% B. 33% C. 55% D. 67% I know the answer is D but how do I work out the problem?
55,000 - 18,000 = 37,000 37,000/55,000 x 100 37/55 x 100 ≈67
You can cancel out the three zeros at the end of 37,000 and 55,000, because they both have them
Hope this helped :)
Thank you very much.
