## How to Calculate Percentage Decrease

To calculate the percentage decrease, you will need two values: the original value (X1) and the new value (X2) after the decrease. The formula for calculating percentage decrease is straightforward – subtract the new value from the original value (X1 – X2), divide this difference by the original number, and then multiply it by 100 to express it as a percentage.

For example, if an item originally costs \$100 and its price goes down to \$80 then calculate the percentage decrease

1. Initial Cost of item = \$100
2. Final Cost of item = \$80
3. Difference of Cost after down the price = \$100 – \$80 = \$20
4. Percentage decrease = [80 -100] / 80 *100 = 20%
