6TH GRADE MATH HELP!!!

Estimate the percent discount Ling will get if the customer usually pays if the phone is 7.95 and the price now is 6.76

What is your estimate?

its confusing on how to get it can someone help me

oh i got it its about 15%

To estimate I'd divide the approximate difference by close to the original price.
1/8 = 0.125 = about 13 percent discount.
The actual discount?
7.95  6.76 = 1.19
1.19 / 7.95 = 0.1496 = 15% 
what is the mat method?

7,95  100%
6,76  x%
x = 100*6,76:7,95
x= 85
100%  85% = 15%
Answer: 15%
