A jump suit costs 125 dollars. The rate of the discount is 20 percent. What is the discount

10% of $125 is$12.50.

Now 20%=2*10%.

So 20% of $125 is$25.

If you were to receive a 20% discount, you’d only have to pay $100 to bag the jump suit. A$25 discount is what the discount is.

You could also say that 20 percent of 125 dollars is a fifth of 125 dollars. A fifth of 125 dollars is 25 dollars. So once again, if you were given 20 percent off, you’d only have to hand out out 100 dollars.
