I don't want the answer to this question, but if someone could please tell me how to work it out, that would be great and I could finish it on my own.
Thank you very much:)

  1. divide the $80 by 6 to see how much each oil change costs with a coupon.

    So, you want to find out what percentage the discount is of the retail price of $15.95.

    So, subtract the coupon price from the retail price to get the savings, then divide that by the retail price.

    And, of course, multiply by 100 at the end to convert a decimal value to %!
