### What is percent decrease of a to b?

To determine a percentage decrease, ascertain the actual
decrease, then divide this by the base number and multiply the
result by 100.
Decrease = a - b
The base number (the number on which the decrease is based) =
a
Therefore, the percentage decrease = 100 x (a - b)/a %
EXAMPLE : What is the percentage decrease of 15 to 11.
Decrease = 15 - 11 = 4 : Base number = 15
Percentage decrease = 100 x 4/15 = 262/3 or 26.67%

### How do you find the percentage decrease between 9.82 and 9.71?

Decrease = Before - After = 9.82 - 9.71
Relative decrease = Decrease/Before = (9.82 - 9.71)/9.82
Percentage decrease = 100*Relative decrease = 100*(9.82 -
9.71)/9.82
= 1.12% approx.
Decrease = Before - After = 9.82 - 9.71
Relative decrease = Decrease/Before = (9.82 - 9.71)/9.82
Percentage decrease = 100*Relative decrease = 100*(9.82 -
9.71)/9.82
= 1.12% approx.
Decrease = Before - After = 9.82 - 9.71
Relative decrease = Decrease/Before = (9.82 - 9.71)/9.82
Percentage decrease = 100*Relative decrease = 100*(9.82 -
9.71)/9.82
= 1.12% approx.
Decrease = Before - After = 9.82 - 9.71
Relative decrease = Decrease/Before = (9.82 - 9.71)/9.82
Percentage decrease = 100*Relative decrease = 100*(9.82 -
