    You need to find 77% of the original price as you are taking away 23% of its value. 77% as a multiplier is (77/100) = 0.77

    46*0.77=$35.42

    Hi there! There is a discount of 23%, however, you still must pay the majority of the original price. Percents are parts of 100. 100 - 23 is 77. You still have to pay 77% of the price. Multiply the original price by the percentage in decimal form. 77% is 0.77 in decimal form. 46 * 0.77 is 35.42. There. The sale price is $35.42.
