    For these questions, calculate the % of the original value then subtract what you get off the value

    £90 = 100%
    90/10 = 9
    9 = 10%
    9/2 = 4.5 = 5%
    4.5 x 3 = 13.5 = 15%
    90- 13.5 = 76.5

    Good answer!

    Start with 90 which is what he paid last year and then find out what 10% of it is.

    To do that simply divide it by 10. Then divide that by half so you can find 5% as well as 10%, then add them both together!

    Now all you do is minus the 15% that you have just worked out from £90!



    I hope this helps! If not i'll reply back ASAP.
    Best regards and good luck!

    PS: by / i mean divide

    Also, if you have a calculator, you could do a slightly quicker way but GreatApesLearn and AlphaArgonian's answers are really good too:

    100% of original price = £90
    85% of original price = 85/100*90 = £76.50

    EDIT: Sorry, forgot Sesshomaru24U!
