37.5%

Step-by-step explanation:

Ok I always do these problems in a weird way cuz im autistic but here’s my process…

10% of 40 is 4

5% of 40 is 2

2.5% of 40 is 1

4 goes in to 25 6 times

4×6=24

which is one less than 25

so there’s six 10%s which is 60%

plus the extra 2.5%

so it’s 62.5%

so the item is 37.5% off…
