What is the percent of discount on a television that originally sold for $700 and is now on sale for $560?

math 
Ms. Sue,
(700  560) / 700 = ?
Change the decimal answer to a percent by moving the decimal point two places to the right.

Please help! I am confused on what to do next. I subtracted the 700 by 560 and got 140 so then I divided by 700 and got 5?

math 
Ms. Sue,
140 divided by 700 = 0.2
0.2 = 20%
