    There is a 47% decrease in Jane’s closet space.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Old measurement of closet = 66 square feet

    New measurement of closet = 34.98 square feet

    Change = New value – Old value

    Change = 34.98 – 66 = -31.02 square feet

    The negative sign indicates the decrease.

    Decrease percent = \frac{Change}{Old\ value}*100

    Decrease\ percent=\frac{31.02}{66}*100 = \frac{3102}{66}\\Decrease\ percent=47\%

    There is a 47% decrease in Jane’s closet space.
