Finding the Percentage Decrease

Finding percent decrease is similar to finding the increase, but the formula is a little different. This video demonstrates this using three examples. To find the percent decrease in the numbers 3.6 and 2.0, take the first number, subtract the second number from it, and divide this by the first number: 3.6-2.0 รท 3.6 = 1.6/3.6 which simplifies to 4/9. The percentage equivalent is 44.4%.
