Math for Journalists

We are coming up on a brief “Math for Journalists” unit.

Journalists often work with percentages.

If in 2015, I ate 20 donuts, and in 2016  I ate 40 donuts, what do you have to say about each of the following statements?

  • I ate half as many donuts in 2015 as in 2016.
  • In 2016, there was a 200% increase in the number of donuts I ate.
  • There was a 50% decrease in the number of donuts I ate in 2015 as compared to 2016.
