In general the formula for percent discount is x - %x = y, where x = original price and y = discount price.

Okay, so in this case, the original price is 25.50 and the sales price is 15.30. So substituting the proper values into the formula we get: 25.50 - %(25.50) = 15.30 Now doing a little algebra, we get: 25.50(1-%) = 15.30 1-% = 15.30/25.50 1-% = .6 1- .6 = % .4 = % 40 = %

Therefore, the percent discount is 40%
