The decrease is 24.3%

Explanation:

Percentage loss, profit, increase, decrease, discount or mark-up are all calculated in exactly the same way:

%" change" = ("change")/("original") xx 100%

The difference between the original price and the sale price is

$18.50-$14.00 = \$4.50 (This is the change)

4.50/18.50 xx 100%

=24.32%
