If you do 9.99/14.99, that gives you the percentage of the old price that the new price is. To work out the discount, take the percentage away from 100%.

To calculate percentage that deducts away from original price. Let's refer that value to be 'X', we can apply 'original price * multiplier = deducted price'.
The 'multiplier' part is ultimately your 'X' value, this is then a matter of rearranging your values to work out 'X'. So in this case it would be '9.99/14.99'. Then to convert that reduction value into a percentage, you simply multiply it by 100.
Therefore (9.99/14.99) * 100 = 66.64%
So 66.64% is taken off.
