Can you explain to me how to find the percent of change? And help me with this problem?

On Monday,my math class learned how to find the percent of change, and I was absent on Monday. And we did some problems in class today, and I still don't understand it.

Can you help me to understand/explain to me the percent of change?

Also, can you help me with this word problem:

According to the United States Census Bureau, the United States population was projected to be about 294,000,000 people on July 1, 2004. The two most populous states were California, with a population of about 36,000,000, and Texas, with a population of about 23,000,000. About what percent of the United States population lived in California of Texas? Round your answer to the nearest percent?
