A sofa regularly sells for $700.00.

Today it is on sale for $630. What is the percent decrease of the price of the sofa?

70 = x(700) divide by 700

x = 1/10 or .10 or 10%

  • “70.00 is what percent of 700”?

  • If you prefer using the percent proportion:

    • P = P that’s what we don’t know

    • B = 700 “of 700”

    • A = 70
