  1. 25% = 25 parts of 100
    We can write that as 0.25 (25/100)

    Multiply:
    0.25 * 250 = $62.50 is the amount off.

    250 - 62.50 = $187.50 is the sale price

  2. change percent to decimal fraction by dividing by 100
    so we mean
    .25 * 250 off

    62.50 off

    250 - 62.50 = $ 187.50

    alternatively
    100% - 25% = 75 %
    75/100 = .75
    .75 * 250 = $ 187.50 againg
