    C because new - original / original, So 190 - 230/230 = -40/230 = 17.39.... so 17.4%

    To find a percent change do this: 1. Subtract the new number minus the old number. 2. Divide the difference by the old number. 3. Multiply by 100. If the answer is positive, it is a percent increase. If the answer is negative, it is a percent decrease.
