    11,493/12,179 = 0.944 = 94.4%. That means a 5.6% decrease. The other way to do that is 12,179-11,493 = 686. 686/12179 x100% = 5.6% decrease. That's 2008-2009.
         The numbers for 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 are a 3.6% decrease and a 0.2% increase, respectively. Try harder before lecturing people, please.
         Easy estimate: 1% of 12,000 is 120. Since the difference is over 600, it's over 5%.

    -7.25, -6.26
