1. A poster advertising a student election candidate is too large according to the election rules. The candidate is told she must reduce the length and width of the poster by 15.0%. By what percentage will the area of the poster be reduced?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im not sure how to go about this problem. Im just beginning in physics and am kind of confused. If anyone can help much would be appreciated!
