8. Fred's dog has been putting on weight and the veterinarian is concerned. At the dog's most recent veterinarian appointment in September the dog weighed 45 pounds. This was a 25% increase since the dog's last veterinarian appointment that was in March. How much did Fred's dog weigh at the veterinarian appointment in March?
Fred's dog weighed 33.75 pounds at the appointment in March
First you need to convert 25% to a decimal by moving the percent sign twice to the left and you will get 0.25.
Then you multiply 45 by 0.25 to find 25% of 45.
45 x 0.25= 11.25
After multiplying, you just have to subtract the product (11.25) by 45.
45 - 11.25 = 33.75
This is the same was doing 45-25%
