The following data were used for a watershed experiencing soil erosion problem: Rainfall Erosivity Index $=280 \mathrm{MJ} \mathrm{mm} \mathrm{ha}^{-1} \mathrm{~h}^{-1}$ year' $^{-1},$ Soil Erodibility Index $=$ 0.38 ton ha $\mathrm{h} \mathrm{MJ}^{-1} \mathrm{~mm}^{-1}$, Slope length $=200 \mathrm{~m}$, Average slope of the land $=8 \%$, Slope steepness factor $=0.85,$ Cropping management factor $=0.35,$ and Conservation practice factor $=0.60$ If the slope length is reduced to half, percentage reduction in soil loss (round off to 2 decimal places) is____________________
