What is the AMOUNT of the discount?

- mathstudent55

First 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.

9

ok thanks

I got 50% thats not right

- mathstudent55

Yes, 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.

- mathstudent55

50% means half.
Half of 45 is 22.5
9 has to be much less than 50%.

thanks @tkhunny

Correct. 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 one-fifth of 45, and 0.2 and 20% are other ways of representing 1/5.
