Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay, 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 = %
