What is 25% of $20.00. What is the total cost of the item?

I multiplied 20 x .25 and my answer was 5.00 Then I subtracted 5.00 from 20.00 making my final answer $15.00 for the item. Please tell me if this is correct.

That's correct -- if you're asking about an item that originally was $20 and now is on sale at 25% off.
