When physicians diagnose arterial blockages, they quote the reduction in flow rate. If the flow rate in an artery has been reduced to 30% of its normal value due to plaque formation, and the average pressure difference has increased by 40%, by what factor has the plaque reduced the radius of the artery?

% of its normal value
