A piece of luggage sells for $225.00. It is on sale this week for $195.00. What is the percent decrease, to the nearest whole percent?

Thanks, EW....here's a way of obtaining his answer

 

% decrease =   [ original price - sales price ] / original price X 100% =

 

[225 - 195 ] 225  x 100%

 

[ 30 ] / 225 x 100%

 

[ 30 * 100 / 225]   %  =

 

3000/225 % ≈  13.33% =  13% decrease

 

 

cool cool cool
