A digital camera was originally priced at $179.00. The price was reduced by 12%. What is the new price of the camera?

Report as

Find the discount by multiplying the original price by the discount rate as a decimal. Then subtract the discount from the original price.
12% = 0.12
179 • 0.12 = 21.48
179 – 21.48 = 157.52
or
Find that 100% – 12% = 88% and multiply 179 • 0.88 = 157.52.
The new price is $157.52.

The price for a digital camera, that was originally priced at $179.00, but was reduced by 12% would be figured in the following manner: 1. Convert the percentage to the decimal, .12. Multiply 179.00 times .12, which comes to $21.79. Subtract $21.70 from $179.00 to get $157.52, which is the new price of the camera.
