    Answer:

    40%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    ok so first find the og price:

    100% – 20% = 80%

    so 80% = 200

    let the 100% be x:

    x * 0.8 = 200

    x= 250

    100% = 250

    (difference/ og price) * 100% = the percentage decrease/ increase

    (250-150/250)* 100% = 40%

    OR

    ((the final price/ og price) * 100%) – 100%

    ((150/250)*100%) – 100% = 40%

    There was a 40% decrease from the og price to the final price of 150.
