A particular stock is valued at $40 per share. If the value increases by 20 percent and then decreases by 25 percent, what will be the value of the stock per share after the decrease?

A particular stock is valued at $40 per share.

If the value increases by 20 percent...
10% of 40 = 4
So, 20% of 40 = 8
The resulting price = $40 + $8 = $48

...and then decreases by 25 percent
25% of $48 = 1/4 of $48 = $12
The resulting price = $48 - $12 = $36

Cheers,
Brent
