ok.. percentage is basically out of 100 for example. if i say i scored 9 of 10.. then if i wanna know what my percentage score is.. then all i have to do is how much would i score out of 100.. and taht comes out to 90.. so 90 percentage.. is that clear?

The difference is $3.50. The percent decrease is therefore the difference divided by the original price: (3.50/28) x 100% = 12.5%???
