To get this answer, try the following methods:
 
1) 25% of $15.00 is $3.75. So 25% off of $15.00 means taking $3.75 off. The math would look like:
 
$15.00 - ($15.00 x 25%) =
$15.00 - $3.75 = 
$11.25.
 
2) The faster way is to realize that taking 25% off of a number will leave you with 75% of that number. So:
 
$15.00 x 75% = $11.25
 
Hope this helps!

Percentages move the decimal 2 places to the left. So 25% is actually .25.
 
If you multiply .25 ($15.00)=$3.75
$3.75 is 25% of $15.00
 
Therefore, $15.00-3.75=$11.25 is how much you would be paying.
