**The original price of an item is $50.**

What is the sale price if the discount is 15%?

-Discounts and Markups-

**Answer**

It would be $42.50.

You would have to do x over 50 = 15 over 100.

Multiply each side by 50.

So do 50 X 15 Divided by 100 and you get 7.5 then subtract 7.5 from 50 and you have your answer
