"If the 16-inch pizza is sold by the slice at $2.00 per slice, the restaurant will make a 25.5% profit."

$12.75 / 8 slices = $1.59375 per slice

 

$2.00 is what percent of $1.59375 ?

\(\frac{$2.00}{$1.59375}=\frac{x}{100} \\~\\ 125.5 \approx x\)

 

They sell each slice for 125.5 % of the original price. That is a 25.5% profit.

True
