Best Answer

Answer: 70%

Solution Method 1:

1 - (84 / 280) = .7

.7 * 100 = 70%

Check:

280 * .7 = 196

280 - 196 = 84

Solution Method 2:

280 - 84 = 196

196 / 280 = .7

.7 * 100 = 70%

Check: 280 - (280 * .7) = 280 - 196 = 84

Previous (incorrect) answer:

84/280=.33333

100-33.333=66.666

66.666% decrease

you can check your work by multiplying 84 by 3 since .3333 is 1/3rd and you get 280
