**Steve**, Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 2:26pmremember: % change is calculated using the original amount

#1 b OK

#2 d because

the change is 54

54/450 = 12%

#3 a because

the change is 4

4/20 = 1/5 = 20%

#4 d because

the change is 12

12/150 = 8%

#5 OK

odd how you got some right and some wrong. They are all done the same way.
