Mohammed saw a car advertised for sale at $17875, having been discounted from 27500. Calculate the percentage discount.
Correct Answer
B. 35%
Explanation
To calculate the percentage discount, we need to find the difference between the original price and the discounted price, and then divide that difference by the original price. In this case, the difference is $27500 - $17875 = $9625. Dividing this by the original price of $27500 and multiplying by 100 gives us (9625/27500) * 100 = 35%. Therefore, the percentage discount is 35%.
