I wouldn't want to do the whole page, then find out I had done them all wrong. :(

[Percents of Change]

A $100 digital watch is now $72

Decrease, 72/100 = negative percent.

100/72.00 = .72

.72 - 1 = 30%?

Thanks.

30% is my final answer, correct?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 11:50pmso, isn't the change in the price $28 ?

so percent of change is 28/100 = 28%

Your last two lines make no sense.

100/72.00 = .72 ??

100/72 = 1.388889 not .72

(why are you dividing 100 by 72 in the first place?)

.72 - 1 = 30%? ????? How can that be 30% ?

.72 - 1 = -.28
