Example:
Method 1:
The price of an item is decreased by 20% for a holiday sale. If the original price of the item is $249, what is the sale price?
Solution:
20% x $249 = part
.2 x 249 = part
49.80 = part
Therefore Amount of the decrease is $49.80.
The sale price of the item = $249.00 - $49.80 = $199.20

Method 2:
Example:
The price of the item is decreased by 20%. Therefore the sale price is 100% - 20% = 80% of the original price.
Solution:
Therefore the sale price is 80% of $249
= .8 x 249
= 199.20
The sale price is $199.20
