    And your answer is??

    1%

    How did you get that? I got a much different answer.

  • math - ,

    I divide 3945/4386=0.89, then I just rounded to 1%.

    Ah -- 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.
