## Solved Examples on Percentage Decrease Calculator

**Solved Examples 1:**

There was a new year discount sale and the price of a dress was decreased from 25 USD to 20 USD. Find the percentage decrease in the price of the dress.

**Solution:**

Initial Price = 25 USD

Reduced Price = 20 USD

Percentage Decrease = (Initial value - Decreased value)/Initial value × 100

= (25-20)/25 × 100

= 5/25 × 100

= 1/5 × 100

= 20%

Therefore, the price of the dress decreased by 20%.
