We are receiving 5 but only paying for 3

 

To find the discount...we have

 

(5 - 3 )

_____  *   100%   =

    5

 

2 / 5  *  100%  =

 

200/5  %  =

 

40%   discount

To figure this problem out, let's use some logic of percentages.

 

Buy 3, get 2 free is saying to pay 60% of the price because 3/5 is 60%. 100%-60% is equivalent to 40% total.

 

The discount is 40%.
