Q:
# Before a sale, an item’s price was $18.00, but this was discounted during the sale to a new price of $14.40. What was the percent of the sale discount?

Accepted Solution

A:

Hello!

First you have to find how far the price went down

You do this by subtracting the whole price by the sale price

18.00 - 14.40 = 3.6

Now you find what percent this is to 18.00

You do this by doing how far the price went down over the whole price

3.6/18 = 0.2

The sale discount was 20%

the answer is 20%

Hope this helps!
