The enrollment of Kennedy High School dropped from 1200 to 1000 over a three-year period. What the percent of decrease during this time?
B 16 2/3
My answer is 1200-1000=200
200/1200= 1/6 ( some wrong )
That's not the answer I got when I divided 200 by 1200.
You need to find the decimal answer. Use a calculator.
the decimal answer is 0.1666666
To find the percent, multiply:
0.1666666 * 100 = 16 2/3%
oh, I get it now, thank you
