Percent of decrease from          to    


Recall that to get the percent of decrease, you need to do the following:

Amount of decrease/ original amount

Then, convert the answer into percent

For example, find the percent of decrease from 60 to 30

Amount of decrease is 60 − 30 = 30

Original amount is 60

30 /60 = 0.5

multiply 2 by one hundred to get the answer as a percent

0.5 × 100 = 50, so the answer is 50%.
