    Divide the difference by the original number.

    Will be a little over 100%

    think about this as ...

    2009 figure was 5254.05
    2010 figure was 2455.60
    which is quite a lot less (nearly half of it) so the % should be around the 50%

    that is the explanation

    to do it with calculations as PGM said

    (5254.05 - 2455.60)/5254.05 = 2798.45/5254.05 = 0.5326 so *100 gives you a % of 53.26%

    Ah yeah, I made the rubbish mistake of getting the years mixed up to get to 100%.

    Marga got it right.

    thank u for your answers _ I actually got there in the end by sheer persistance based on knowing it had to be more than 50%

    and don't worry about BTC like I said somewhere else on managed to pass first time so it mustn't be that hard lol
