If I go to a pizzeria and order a large stuffed pizza that normally goes for $17 and I have a coupon so that  I end up paying $13, what percent of a discount did I get? Please show how you got to your answer.

To find the percent of discount:

1) calculate the amount of discount:  $17.00 - $13.00  =  $4.00

2) divide this answer by the original amount:  $4.00 / $17.00  =  0.2342941176,,,  --->   rounded:  0.234

3) turn this answer into a percentage:  0.234  --->   23.4%
