Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so, start price is 1.79 so we could say that 1.79 is the 100% amount so how much is 20cents of $1.79 or 179cents? well \(\large { \begin{array}{ccllll} \$&\% \\\hline\\ 179&100\\ 20&x \end{array}\implies \cfrac{179}{20}=\cfrac{100}{x}\impliedby \textit{solve for "x"} }\)
