I'm am figuring the reduction in yield for a corn plant. this is the formula that we have to use:

(avg. yield no infestation-average yield high infestation)/avg. yield no infestation x 100

This is my data:  Average yield no infestation=163.03     Average yield high infestation=160.60

The answer that I calculated was 0.000149052  Should I move the decimal (2 places to the right for the percent reduction in yield? Or is this the final answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Am really grateful and hope you find it helpful.

(avg. yield no infestation-average yield high infestation)/avg. yield no infestation x 100

(163.03-160.6)/163.03*100

=0.0149052322*100

=1.49052322%

This is the correct working
