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.
