    lets do this; a percent is a division of 100 peices so we need to divide 92 into 100 peices 92/100 = 1%

    and we need to know how much 20 of those peices is worth (92/100) * 20

    now since the discounted $18.40 from $92.00; we simply subtract the 2

    92.00 18.40 ------ 73.60 is the new price right?
