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.

  • Math -

    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.

    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.
