Hello all,

Any help much appreciated!

Question-
The yearly change in the yield of one particular crop in our area over the past 2 years was 20% increase followed by 20% decrease. What is the total percentage change over two years?

Thanks,

20% increase in year 1 gives you 120.
20% decrease is year 2 gives you a decrease of 24, so net result of 96.

In maths terms, I would describe the change as (1+.2)*(1-.2)=.96, so a total chance of 1-.96= a reduction by 4%
