 Question 274806: If x is 11 1/9 % percent more than y, then y is what percent less than x? A 9% b 10% c 11 1/9% d 12 1/2% Answer by dabanfield(803)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If x is 11 1/9 % percent more than y, then y is what percent less than x? A 9% b 10% c 11 1/9% d 12 1/2% Note that 11 1/9 % = 1/9. So we have: x = y + (1/9)*y x = (9/9)*y + (1/9)*y x = (10/9)*y y = (9/10)*x y then is 90% of x so y is 10% less than x.
