Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First find the amount of the discount. This is the part. Then divide the part by the total original price and multiply by 100 to find the percent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, the part is 9. Now you are trying to find what percent of 45 is 9. Since 9 is the part, divide the part (9) by the whole (45) and multiply by 100.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.150% means half. Half of 45 is 22.5 9 has to be much less than 50%.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct. 20% is correct. Check: What is 20% of 45? 20% of 45 = 20% * 45 = 0.2 * 45 = 9, and 9 was the discount. Also notice that 9 is onefifth of 45, and 0.2 and 20% are other ways of representing 1/5.
