Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, first work out the decrease and we do that by subtracting the the new prices from the original. $85.00  $68.00 = After getting the difference from above you need to divide the decrease by the original cost and multiply by 100 So we have \( \huge \frac{(85.00  68.00)}{85.00} \times 100 = ? \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so to work out the percentage you need this formula; change in price *100 ____________________ Original price (that is "divided by")

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, it will look like this too \( \huge \frac{17}{85.00} \times 100 = ? \)
