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%.
