I'm not sure you have the data from the question quite right, but here goes. When you have a percentage problem, just remember this equation: part = percentage * whole This is the easiest way to work with percentages. Every percent problem will give you 2 of these 3 items and you just need to solve this equation for the other one. In your question, the 280 pesos? is the regular price or the whole. The discount percentage is 35%. The part will be the amount of the discount once we calculate it. part = percentage * whole part = 35% * 280 pesos part = 98 pesos This tells us that 98 pesos is the amount of the discount because it is 35% of the total price. The amount yet to be paid is 280-98 or 182 pesos. I don't know what the 38 pesos is.
