Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

The formula for calculating the percent change in a value between two points in time is:

#p = (N - O)/O * 100#

Where:

#p# is the percent change - what we are solving for in this problem.

#N# is the New Value - 22 in this problem.

#O# is the Old Value - 44 in this problem.

Substituting and solving for #p# gives:

#p = (22 - 44)/44 * 100#

#p = -22/44 * 100#

#p = -2200/44#

#p = -50#

There is a negative 50% change between 44 and 22
