There’s a Laptop which costs 2395 $ and it’s price is reduced to 1595 $. I have to calculate the percentage discount.

Is this correct? If yes, then just tell me that it is. And if not, tell me how can I solve it?

Solution:= 2395-1595

=800 $ (Discount $)

=800รท239×100

=33.40 % Ans.

Is it correct? I’ll be very thankful if anyone of you will help. Please Help!

The dollar amount of the discount is $2395 – $1595 = $800

$800/$2395 โ 0.334 = 33.4%

The discount is 33.4% of the original price.

Yep, you got it! ๐

yes that is right. but it’s much simpler than that. just divide 1595 by 2395 which is 66.6

(100 minus 66.6 = 33.4% discount)

no, it is not correct.

what you do is take the 800, and divide 2395 by that

also,

800/2395

to get…

0.33402922755741127348643006263048

or,

33.4%

so you are correct
