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

• math -

(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 -

140 divided by 700 = 0.2

0.2 = 20%

Thank you so much! :D have a nice night

You're welcome. :-)
