Ms. Sue is totally correct.
If you want to go a little bit simpler then:
25% off something is equal to 75/100 * (the price of the "something") because 25% = 25/100. But 25% means that you take that much off, so you need to minus 25/100 from the original percentage, that is 100/100. So you get 75/100 * (something) => 75/100 * 2 => 3/4 * 2 = ?posted by John

I think the best answer is $1.75 because you take off 25% with with with $0.25 so technically you will pay one quarter less thank you if you if you like this do the best you can at school by see you later
