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.
