FINDING DECREASED PERCENTAGE

**FINDING DECREASED PERCENTAGE -**

**To calculate the decreased percentage, you need to find the percentage decrease between two values. Here's how you can do it:**

**Decreased Percentage = ((Old Value - New Value) / Old Value) * 100**

** [Where, Old Value < New Value]**

**Where:**

__Old Value:-__The initial value before the decrease.__New Value:-__The value after the decrease.

**Let's work through an example:**

**Example.1) Suppose the temperature was initially 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and after cooling, it became 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Calculate the decreased percentage in temperature.**

**Ans.) **

**Old Value = 80 degrees Fahrenheit****New Value = 60 degrees Fahrenheit**

**Decreased Percentage = ((80 - 60) / 80) * 100 = (20 / 80) * 100 = 0.25 * 100 = 25%**

**So, the temperature decreased by 25%. (Ans.)**

**Example.2) Suppose the temperature was initially 80 degrees Fahrenheit and it decreased to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Calculate the decreased percentage.**

**Ans.) Old Value = 80°F****New Value = 60°F**

**Decreased Percentage = ((80 - 60) / 80) * 100 = (20 / 80) * 100 = 0.25 * 100 = 25%**

**So, the temperature decreased by 25%. (Ans.)**

**Example.3) Suppose the temperature was initially 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and after some cooling, it became 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Calculate the decreased percentage.**

**Ans.) Old Value = 80°F****New Value = 60°F**

**Decreased Percentage = ((80 - 60) / 80) * 100 = (20 / 80) * 100 = 0.25 * 100 = 25%**

**So, the temperature decreased by 25%. (Ans.)**
