If the original price was $90, what was the amount by which the price was reduced? To find a percentage of a number, multiply that number by the percent. The percent is called the rate and number is called the base. Percentage = Rate x Base First, change the percent to an equivalent decimal. Then multiply this by the base value of 90. Percentage = Rate xBase 0.40x90 = 36 Thus, the 40% price reduction of $90 is $36. 1M1
