A percent is a ratio, and a ratio is a way of comparing two numbers with division. When you go from 45 to 70, the difference is 25. When you go from 70 to 45, the difference is also 25. The reason the percentages are different is that when you go from 45 to 70, you are finding what percent of 45 is 25? When you go from 70 to 45, you are finding what percent of 70 is 25? The change is the same in both cases, 25, but the difference is that the number you are comparing 25 with is different in each case.
