  • To solve this, we begin by finding how many less visitors there were.  We do this by subtracting 1,349 from 1,525.  1,525 - 1,349 = 176.

    Now, we find what percent of 1,525 176 is.  We do this by dividing 176 by 1,525 and multiplying the result by 100 to get a percent.  176/1,525 *100 = 11.54%, so the percent decrease was 11.54%.
