Round your answer to a whole number, and remember to include appropriate units.

P price reduced from  $ 82 to  $ 30         82-30 = $ 52  off

 52 is what percentage of  82?

 

52/82  x 100% =  63.4 %  reduction   rounded  = 63% off

%  reduction = 

 

(  [ Old Price  - New Price  ]  / [ Old Price]  x 100  )  %   =

 

( [ 80 - 32 ]  / [ 80 ] x 100 ) %  =

 

( 48/80  x 100)%  =

 

(  3/5 x 100)%  =

 

(.60 x 100)%  =

 

60 %

 

 

 

cool cool cool

82 should be the denominator.

Yeah..... CPhill, do you see what you did wrong? Or do you think you're correct?

Just a mis-read....should  be  30 instead of 32  and  82  instead of  80

 

Thanks to EP for the correct answer   !!!!
