 Example 1: Ria bought a dress with a price tag of \$24. She paid only \$6. What percent discount did she get? The actual discount she received = \$24 - \$6 = \$18 This discount was on the regular price of \$24. Therefore, percent discount = (18/24) x 100 = 75% Example 2: John paid \$9 for a book after a discount of 75%. What was the original price? He paid \$9 for the book after 75% discount. That means he paid 25% of the original price. If 25% is \$9, how much is 100%? Therefore, Original Price = (100/25) x 9 = \$36 Directions: Answer the following qustions.
