Conchan <dorun -at- m3 -dot- dion -dot- ne -dot- jp> wants to interpret some data he's been given.

I do not agree with Bonnie's interpretation. I have a different one. (Sorry.)

> their percentage changes in population from 1980 to 1990.
> City A 95/5, 50/50, +95
> City B 20/80, 50/50, -40
> City C 80/20, 60/40, +20
> City D 90/10, 10/90, +180

I think the data shows that the total population of City A increased 95%
between 1980 and 1990. In orther words, it's almost twice as big now.

I don't think the third piece of data is related to the first two pieces.

I hope this helps!
