Let the number of cases solved in 2003 be $x$. This was $80\%$ of the number of cases, so there were $5x/4$ cases to solve in 2003. So the number of cases to solve in 2004 was $5x/4 \times 6/5$, which is $3x/2$. Inspector Remorse solved $60\%$ of the cases, which is $9x/10$. So there was a $10\%$ decrease in the number of cases solved.
