Dear vp_help,

Am I right to these questions? Thanks again for your help!

-"What is 3 increased by 500%?"

-"what is 4 decreased by 250%?"

4*(1-250%)=-6

-"When 4 decreases to -2,what is the percent decrease?"

(-2-4)/4=-3/2=-150%

Therefore,150 percent decrease

-"What is 3 increased by 500%?"

3 + 3* 5 = 18

-"what is 4 decreased by 250%?"

4 - 2.5 * 4 = -6

-"When 4 decreases to -2,what is the percent decrease?"

(-2 - 4)/4 = -6/4 = -150%
