    Answer: $17

    Step-by-step explanation: To find the sale price, we first need to find the discount. To find the discount we use the formula shown.

    Original price * rate of discount = sale price

    In this problem, we are given that the sleeping bag is originally $68 and the rate of discount is 75% off or. 75. Now, we multiply.

    68 *.75 = 51

    Now we know that the discount is $51.

    Now, let's find the sale price. The formula for the sale price is shown below.

    Original price - discount = sale price

    The original price of the sleeping bag was $68 and the discount is $51. Now we have to subtract.

    $68 - $51 = $17

    Therefore, the sale price of the sleeping bag is $17.
