Here's the question

2. anonymous

what numbers did you use?

3. anonymous

I did 306/321*100=95.3% Second, I wanted to find the decrease of the percent 321 which is 16 so 321-306=16 (321/16)*100=2006.25 or 8025/4

4. anonymous

you did your steps backwards. Find the decrease first then divide by the first value. $\frac{ 321-306 }{ 321 }\times100$

5. anonymous

4.672

6. anonymous

yes

7. anonymous

The answer was 5.8
