    Answer:

    The number of daily newspapers in a country were 2,401 in 1900 and 1,303 in 2010. The percentage change is -46%.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The initial percentage(in 1900) is 100%(1 decimal).

    The current percentage(in 2010) we can find by a rule of three.

    So

    2401 – 1

    1303 – x

    [tex]2401x = 1303[/tex]

    [tex]x = \frac{1303}{2401} = 0.54[/tex]

    The current percentage is 54% of the initial percentage. So the percentage change is a decrease = 100-54 = 46%, so -46%.

    So the answer is:

    The number of daily newspapers in a country were 2,401 in 1900 and 1,303 in 2010. The percentage change is -46%.
