**A person weighed themselves at 153 lb. Five months later they weighed themselves at 120 lb. Which of the following is the percent of weight the person lost over 5 months? (Round to the nearest percent.)**

38%

22%

19%

29%

*Correct Answer : B*

The percentage change in weight is found in three steps below:

Absolute change in weight=final weight-initial weight

Absolute change in weight= (left|120-153 ight|=left|-33 ight|=33)

Relative change in weight=* (frac{absolute change}{initial weight}=frac{33}{153}=0.216)*

Percent change=relative change * 100%

Percent change=0.216*100%=21.6%

The percent change in weight lost is 21.6 %, which is about 22%.

Before finding the greatest number from the data set, the numbers need to be in fraction form.

-0.5=-5/10

-1.5=-15/10

The set of numbers becomes -2/3, -5/10, -15/10, -4/9

Now the least common denominator for 3, 10, and 9 is 90, which will be used to multiplied by the given fractions as follows:

-2/3*90=-60

-5/10*90=-45

-15/10*90=-135

-4/9*90=-40

From the above evaluations, the resulting numbers arranged from the smallest to the largest is -135, -60, -45, -40. Thus, the greatest number from the data set is -40, with a corresponding fraction of -4/9.
