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
