Question

The regular price of a pair of shorts was $58. During a sale, the price was reduced to
$43.50. Determine the percent discount. How would you do this? I know how to do it when it gives you the price before the discount and then it gives you the discount. But I was never taught how to do it this way.

    DISCOUNT PERCENT = (MP – SP)×100%/MP
    = (58-43.50)×100%/ 58
    = 14.5×100%/58
    =25%

    answer: 25%
    Steps: 58 – 43.50 = 14.5 (amount decreased)
    (14.50/58) x 100 = 25%
    – To check this you have to do the reverse!
