let the fraction be x/y
x is decrease by 20 %
New numerator is (1-20/100) times x = (1-0.2)x = 0.8 x
y is decreased by 60%
New denominator is (1-60/100) times y = (1-0.6)y = 0.4y
New fraction is 0.8x/0.4y =(0.8/0.4) (x/y) = 2(x/y)
Percentage change in fraction = (change / original ) X100
change in fraction = 2(x/y)-(x/y) = x/y
original fraction = x/y
percentage change = (x/y) / (x/y) times 100 = 1 X 100 = 100%
Fraction increases by 100%
