How to Calculate Percentage of Price?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Percentage of Price.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total amount discounted ($). 
    1. The total amount discounted ($) is given as: 75.
  2. Next, determine the original price ($). 
    1. The original price ($) is provided as: 150.
  3. Finally, calculate the Percentage of Price using the equation above:
