If a $20 shirt is 15% off, what is the final price of the shirt?

Answer below:

**Original Price**: The shirt originally costs $20.**Discount Percentage**: The shirt is on sale with a 15% discount. This means you will pay 15% less than the original price.**Calculating the Discount Amount**:- To find out how much money 15% represents, we convert the percentage into a decimal by dividing it by 100. So, 15% becomes 0.15.
- Then, we multiply this decimal by the original price of the shirt to find the discount amount: 0.15 x $20 = $3

**Applying the Discount**: Now that we know the discount is $3, we subtract this amount from the original price to find the final price.- Original Price ($20) – Discount Amount ($3) = Final Price.

**Final Price**: Therefore, after applying the 15% discount, the final price of the shirt is $17.
