    Ok so 10/100=.1 multiply 4695(.1) to find what 10% of the cars original price is 4695(.1)=469.50 now to find your answer subtract 469.50 from 4695 4695-469.50=$4225.5

    An easier way to do this is to multiply the original value by 0.9 to get the answer straight away since taking away 10% leaves you with 90% regardless...
