The change is of -1.3 percentage points.

Step-by-step explanation:

The humidity is currently 56% and falling at a rate of 4 percentage points per hour.

This means that after n hours the humidity is of:

$H(n) = 56 - 4n$

Estimate the change in humidity over the next 20 minutes.

It currently is 56%.

20 minutes is 20/60 = 1/3 of an hours, so:

$H(\frac{1}{3}) = 56 - 4\frac{1}{3} = 54.7$

Change:

54.7 - 56 = -1.3

The change is of -1.3 percentage points.
