    I am not exactly sure how to do this. I have an idea but I am not fully sure. Do you know how to do find percentages?

    You divide the numerator (top) by the denominator (bottom) Your fraction in this case would be 26/30. What would this give you?

    \[\frac{ greater - lesser }{ actual } \times 100\]

    So your greater value is 30 and the lesser value is 26. But the actual number was 30. Here is the new expression. \[\frac{ 30 - 26 }{ 30 } \times 100\]

    And we multiply it by 100 to get the percentage from the decimal.
