1. Subtract the difference in costs (135 - 90)

2. Divide the original cost by the difference between the two costs.

3. Change the decimal to a percent.

If you post your answer, we'll be glad to check it.

Sorry, but I was wrong in step 2. You should divide the difference by the original cost.

45/135 = 0.3333 = 33%

Off-season is 33% lower than peak season.
