There is a take 'n bake pizzeria near my apartment that I enjoy going to every once in a while.  Every time I go, I get the same pizza pie, a large chicken and bacon stuffed pizza pie which costs US$17; however, on Tusesday's, the pizzeria has a deal that you can buy any large pizza pie for US$10.  If I buy my favorite pizza pie on a Tuesday, how much money do I save and how much of a percent do I save?

Savings  = $17 −  $10    = $7

 

% saved [off original price ]  = ( [Original Price − New Price] / Original Price * 100 ) %  =

 

( [ 17 − 10 ] / 17   * 100  ) %   ≈  47.2 %
