# The population of a city decreased from 25,000 to 24,500. Find the percentage decrease

**Solution:**

From the given data in the question,

Decrease in city population = 25000 – 24500 = 500

Therefore, change in population = 500

Initial population = 25000

Percentage decrease = (Change in population / Initial population) × 100

On substituting the values, we get

= (500 / 25000) ×100

= 2%
