The price of a stock decreased three dollars per day for 11 consecutive days. What was the total change in value of the stock over the 11-day period?

As the price decreased by three dollars per day for 11 days, we need to multiply three by 11. Three multiplied by 11 is equal to 33. Therefore, there was a 33-dollar decrease in the stock.

As the stock decreased, we can say that the total change was negative 33 dollars.
