Let us assume the value of x to be 10%.


Therefore, the number of sheep in the herd at the beginning of year 2001 (end of 2000) will be 1 million + 10% of 1 million = 1.1 million



In 2001, the numbers decrease by y% and at the end of the year the number sheep in the herd = 1 million.

i.e., 0.1 million sheep have died in 2001.



In terms of the percentage of the number of sheep alive at the beginning of 2001,


it will be (0.1/1.1)*100 % = 9.09%.



From the above illustration it is clear that x > y.
