There was a girl named jeanene. She was so fat that she weighed 150 lbs. She decided to loose some weight. After she lost weight, she weighed 45 lbs. By what percent did her weight decrease?

Default Answer to Jeanete's Problem

150-45=105

105/150=.7

.7 times 100 equals 70.

She lost 70% of her orginal body weight.

P.S. It is kind of mean that you used Jeanene's name
