Complete the above table

**Solution:**

To complete the table the following calculations need to be done:

Petrol/L: Percentage Decrease = [(45.62 - 40.62)/45.62] × 100 = [5/45.62] × 100 = 10.96%

Diesel/L: % Decrease = [(32.86 - 30.86)/32.80] × 100 = [2/32.86 × 100 = 6.09%

LPG/14.2kg % Decrease [(304.70 - 279.70)/304.70] × 100 = [25/304.70] × 100 = 8.20%

The table will be completed as:

Fuel Old prices/ New price/ % Decrease
