# How do you find the percent change from 200 to 148?

May 18, 2016

Change: -26% or (which means the same thing) a decrease of 26%

#### Explanation:

"Percentage change" = ("change in value")/("original value")xx100%

$\text{change in value" = "current value" - "original value}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXXXXXXX}} = 148 - 200 = - 52$

"Percentage change"= (-52)/(200)xx100%=-26%
