Percent of Change Project
The Skittles company was a very successful company in the 1990's. They sold there skittles for 1.19 and it was a decent price for back then. I did the percent of change math and it is at a increase of 1.31%. They were a very nice expensive candy for the 1990's. They were competition for the rivaling M&M company. Skittles were one of the most popular candies if not the most. We were trying to find out about what the percent of change was for the skittles and M&Ms were and we have answered the question for both.
