Analise's resting heart rate is 75 beats per minute. When she sleeps, it slows to 60 beats per minute. What percent decrease is this?

To find the percentage decrease:

1)  Subtract the new from the original:  75 - 60  =  15

2)  Divide by the original:  15 / 75  =  0.20

3)  Turn into a decimal by multiplying by 100:  0.20 x 100  =  20.0%
