    Answer:

    The absolute change is of 3 inches.

    The relative change is of 15%.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Absolute:

    The absolute change is the subtraction of the typical width of a movie theater seat in 2010 by the width in 1990.

    So it is 23 – 20 = 3 inches.

    Relative:

    This is the absolute change divided by the initial value.

    So 3/20 = 0.15.

    Multiplying by 100, to write as a percentage

    0.15*100 = 15%.
