You take the number of reduction, and divide that by the initial number. Multiply the answer by 100, and you will get the percentage reduction.

Rubbish. This answer is wrong!

The answer is:

PR = (A-B)/A*100

Where PR = % Reduction, A = the highest amount, and B = the lowest amount

"Rate" (of reduction) can mean different things. It can refer to a change over time, or it can refer to a change relative to a starting amount. To calculate a change over time:   Divide the amount of reduction by the time period over which it occurs.   Example: I lost 3 pounds in 2 weeks, so my rate of reduction is 1.5 pounds per week.  To calculate a change relative to a starting amount:   Divide the amount of reduction by the starting amount. Multiply this result by 100%, as such rates are often expressed as percentages.   Example: A $50 item was reduced by $3. The rate of reduction was 3/50*100% = 6%.  Sometimes, you are interested in both, that is, a percentage change over a time interval (-10% per year, for example). For that, you compute the percentage change and divide by the corresponding time interval.

The basic formula is this   (original price) - (original price)*(discount) = (discounted price)  It can be rearranged in a number of ways   (original price)*(1 - discount) = (discounted price)   (discounted price)/(1 - discount) = (original price)   1 - (discounted price)/(original price) = (discount)  In these formulas, "discount" is a number (usually a decimal number or fraction). To convert a percentage to a decimal, divide by 100%. To convert a decimal to a percentage, multiply by 100%. Examples   original price = $40.00; discounted price = $35.00; what is the discount percentage?   1 - ($35/$40) = 1 - 0.875 = 0.125 = 12.5%    original price = $30.00; discount = 10%; what is the discounted price?   ($30)(1 - 0.10) = $30*0.90 = $27.00
