a blouse that regularly sells for $28.50 is on sale for one-third off. What is the sale price if the dress?
$19.00 is the new price of the dress
What you would do is the price of the object (p) multiplied by the discount (in decimal form, or g, for our purposes). So, the formula for solving problems like this is p * g. The answer to your problem is $19.10 (rounding up from .095 cents).
