Given,

Number of people who went to the zoo on Sunday = 845

Number of people who went to the zoo on Monday = 169

\therefore The decrease in the number of people visiting the zoo = (845 - 169) = 676

\therefore Percentage decrease 

=\frac{676}{845}\times100 \%      

=80\%    (Decrease from the original number)

The percent decrease in the people visiting the Zoo is 80%
