# 132 days to 125.4 days, what is the percent change?

Nov 28, 2016

this is a -5% change.

#### Explanation:

The formula to measure the percent changed is:

p = (N - O)/O*100% where $p$ is the percent change, $N$ is the New value and $O$ is the Old value. We are given the Old value (132) and the New value (125.4) which we can substitute into the formula to calculate the percent change:

p = (125.4 - 132)/132*100%

p = -6.6/132*100%

p = (-660/132)%

p = -5%
