Todd and Cassidy went on a diet together. Todd’s weight dropped from 220 pounds to 190 pounds. Cassidy’s weight dropped from 150 pounds to 135 pounds. Who had the greater percent weight loss?

  • Math -

    220 - 190 = 30 pounds
    30/220 = 0.136 = 13.6%

    Follow the same procedure for Cassidy's weight loss. Then compare the percents.
