Answer:

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%#
