    Answer:

    Percentage in decrease = 10 %

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given  : Original population: 1,503  and New population: 1,356.

    To find : Estimate the percent of decrease.

    Solution : We have given

    Original population: 1,503

    New population: 1,356.

    Value decrease = original population – new population.

    Decrease = 1,503    – 1,356

    Decrease population =  147

    Percentage in decrease = \frac{decrease\ value}{original}*100.

    Percentage in decrease = \frac{147}{1503}*100.

    Percentage in decrease = \frac{14700}{1503}.

    Percentage in decrease = 9.78 %

    Estimate = 10 %.

    Therefore,

    Percentage in decrease = 10 %
