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

From jumpstart booklet grade 8

    You save $48.

    48/240 = 0.2 = 20%

    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
