**Aleah**, Wednesday, July 15, 2009 at 7:55pmI divide 3945/4386=0.89, then I just rounded to 1%.

**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, July 15, 2009 at 8:19pmAh -- you forgot the subtraction part.

4,386 - 3,945 = 441

Now compare that difference with the original number.

441/3,945 = ?

We can prove an answer by reversing the procedure.

3,945 * 0.1 = 394.5

3,945 + 394.5 does not equal 4,386.
