With a coupon, you can get a pair of shoes that normally costs $84 for only $71.40. What percentage was the discount? *

Ok so you have to divide 71.40 by 84, then you multiply the result by 100 to get a percentage.

 

71.40 / 84= 0.85

 

0.85*100= 85%

 

Edit: I forgot to subtract it from 100%. The answer would be 15%. :)

1 - [71.40 / 84] ==0.15  x  100 ==15% - the discount rate.

(84-71.40) / 84  x 100% = 15% discount
