If an athlete’s weight decreased from 160 pounds to 152 pounds, what was the percent decrease in the athlete’s weight?
Remember that the percent change formula is (difference/original) x 100 and that in a percent decrease, the original value will be the larger of the two numbers.
160 - 152 = 8 is the difference.
Divide that value by the larger of the two values 160. 8 ÷ 160 = .05.
Multiply .05 by 100 to find that the percent decrease is 5%.
