need help with this problem can someone help me?
"At the end of the week one, a stock had increased in value from $5.75 a share to $7.50 a share. Find the percent of increase at the end of week one to the nearest tenth of a percent.
At the end of the week two, the same stock had decreased in value from $7.50 to $5.75. Is the percent of the decrease at the end of the week two the same as the percent of increase at the end of the week one?"

algebra 
Ms. Sue,
Week One:
7.50  5.75 = 1.75
1.75/5.75 = 0.304347826 = 30.4% increase
Week Two:
1.75/7.5 = 0.233333333 = 23.3% decrease
