A stereo system that regularly sells for \$240 goes on sale for \$192 what is the percent discount

thanks

You're welcome.

• math -

why did u divide by 240

• math -

You want to find the percent that the original price is discounted.

If you are the merchant and decide to get rid of these \$240 stereo systems, you decide to offer 20% off the original price.

20% of 240 = \$48

240 - 48 = 192
