## Decrease the number 24.99 by 9.2% of its value

(1 - 9.2%) × 24.99 = ?

### A brief introduction. Percentage Decrease Change Calculation. Verification of the Result. The Answer

## A brief introduction. Definitions and formulas

### Percent, p%

#### 'Percent (%)' means 'out of one hundred':

#### 9.2% = 9.2 'out of one hundred',

#### p% is read p 'percent',

#### p% = ^{p}/_{100} = p ÷ 100

#### 9.2% = ^{9.2}/_{100} = 9.2 ÷ 100 = 0.092

#### 100% = ^{100}/_{100} = 100 ÷ 100 = 1

### How to decrease the number 24.99

by 9.2% of its value?

#### The value of the percentage decrease = 9.2% × 24.99

#### The new value = 24.99 - The value of the percentage decrease

## Detailed calculations and the calculation proof

### 1. Calculate the new value of the number...

... decreased by percentage of its initial value

#### The new value =

#### 24.99 - The value of the percentage decrease =

#### 24.99 - (9.2% × 24.99) =

#### 24.99 - 9.2% × 24.99 =

#### (1 - 9.2%) × 24.99 =

#### (100% - 9.2%) × 24.99 =

#### 90.8% × 24.99 =

#### 90.8 ÷ 100 × 24.99 =

#### 90.8 × 24.99 ÷ 100 =

#### 2,269.092 ÷ 100 =

#### 22.69092 ≈

#### 22.69

### 2. Calculate the actual change (the absolute difference)...

... between the new value and the initial one

#### The actual change =

#### The new value - 24.99 =

#### 22.69092 - 24.99 =

#### - 2.29908 ≈

#### - 2.3

## Proof of calculation

### We will prove below that the calculations are correct:

#### Calculate the value of the percentage decrease and see if we get as a result the actual change (the absolute difference) between the new value and the initial one.

#### For positive numbers, the actual change = - 1 × The value of the percentage decrease

### Calculate the value of the percentage decrease:

#### The value of the percentage decrease =

#### 9.2% × 24.99 =

#### 9.2 ÷ 100 × 24.99 =

#### 9.2 × 24.99 ÷ 100 =

#### 229.908 ÷ 100 =

#### 2.29908 ≈

#### 2.3

#### The value of the percentage decrease = - 1 × The actual change =>

#### In conclusion, the calculations are correct.

## The answer:

:: written in two ways ::

## Not rounded:

24.99 decreased by 9.2% of its value = 22.69092

The actual change:

22.69092 - 24.99 = - 2.29908

Rounded off to max. 2 decimal places:

24.99 decreased by 9.2% of its value ≈ 22.69

The actual change:

22.69 - 24.99 ≈ - 2.3

#### The symbols used: % percent, ÷ division, × multiplication, = the equal sign, / the fraction bar, ≈ approximately the same. Writing numbers: comma ',' - as a thousands separator, point '.' as a decimal mark.

### How to calculate the new value of a number by decreasing it by percentage of its value and the absolute percentage change (difference)

- Percentage decreased number = Initial value - Absolute percentage change (difference)
- Absolute percentage change (difference) = Percentage decrease % × Initial value
- Percentage decreased number = Initial value - Percentage decrease % × Initial value = (1 - Percentage decrease %) × Initial value
- In conclusion:
#### Percentage decreased number = (1 - Percentage decrease %) × Initial value

#### Initial value = ^{Percentage decreased number} / _{(1 - Percentage decrease %)}

#### Absolute percentage change (difference) = Percentage decrease % × Initial value = New value - Initial value

### Four examples of calculations below.

- How to decrease a number by percentage of its value
- How to calculate the absolute percentage change:

#### Example 1:

- If Percentage decrease % = 20%, (1 - Percentage decrease %) = 1 - 20% = 100/100 - 20/100 = 80/100 = 0.8 =>
**Percentage decreased number** = 0.8 × Initial value, and **Initial value** = Percentage decreased number / 0.8; **Absolute percentage change (difference)** = New value - Initial value;

#### Example 2:

- If Percentage decrease % = 5%, (1 - Percentage decrease %) = 1 - 5% = 100/100 - 5/100 = 95/100 = 0.95 =>
**Percentage decreased number** = 0.95 × Initial value, and **Initial value** = Percentage decreased number / 0.95; **Absolute percentage change (difference)** = New value - Initial value;

#### Example 3:

- If Percentage decrease % = 120%, (1 - Percentage decrease %) = 1 - 120% = 100/100 - 120/100 = -20/100 = -0.2 =>
**Percentage decreased number** = -0.2 × Initial value, and **Initial value** = Percentage decreased number / -0.2; **Absolute percentage change (difference)** = New value - Initial value;

#### Example 4:

- If Percentage decrease % = -30%, (1 - Percentage decrease %) = 1 - (-30%) = 1 + 30% = 100/100 + 30/100 = 130/100 = 1.3 =>
**Percentage decreased number** = 1.3 × Initial value, and **Initial value** = Percentage decreased number / 1.3; this is in fact a percentage increase of the initial number; **Absolute percentage change (difference)** = New value - Initial value.
