Last year a poll of 100 voters conducted by by the staff of senator Chun found that 522 people approved of the job the senator was doing. This year, a new poll of 1000 voters shows that 423 people approve of the senator's performance. find the percent of change in the number of voters who approve of the senators performance, and identify it as an increase or decrease.....thank you!
