During peak season, a hotel room costs $135 per night. During the off-season, it costs $90 pernight. Find the percent of change from peak season to off-season.
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.
