Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Sale price is $12 which is 80% of the regular price.Step-by-step explanation:A large two-topping Pizza is 20% off the regular price of $15.
Therefore, the sale price is [tex]15(1 - \frac{20}{100} ) = 15 \times 0.8 = 12[/tex] dollars. (Answer)
Now, let us assume that x% of regular price i.e. $15 is the sale price i.e. $12.
So, [tex]\frac{15 \times x}{100} = 12[/tex]
⇒ [tex]x = \frac{12 \times 100}{15}[/tex]
⇒ x = 80% (Answer)
