    Answer:the percentage decrease is 36.67%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Initial amount of sugar in his diet is 15 spoons in a day. Currently, the amount of sugar in his diet is 9 1/2 spoons in a day. Converting to decimal, it becomes 9.5 spoon in a day. The amount by which he reduced his sugar intake is 15 - 9.5 = 5.5 spoons.

    Percentage decrease would be expressed as

    Amount by which the intake decreased / initial intake * 100

    It becomes

    5.5/15 * 100 = 36.67%
