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?"

  1. 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
