let the cp be 1500. and discount be 2.5 % so the sp is 

 cp - discountes price= 1500-2.5/100 of 1500

                               = 1500-37.5

                               =  1462.5

 thank you

100%-2.5%=97.5% or $${\frac{{\mathtt{97.5}}}{{\mathtt{100}}}}$$ is the amount reduced from the discount

multiply it with your amount

$${\frac{{\mathtt{97.5}}}{{\mathtt{100}}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{1\,500}} = {\mathtt{1\,462.5}}$$

 

answer is $1462.50

 

Hope it helped you
