QUESTION:Matt buys a TV for $\pounds 550$, and a year later sells it to his friend Dave for $32\%$ less. Calculate how much Dave purchased the TV for.

ANSWER: This is a $32\%$ decrease, so the multiplier for a $32\%$ decrease is

$1-\dfrac{32}{100}=0.68$

Next we need to multiply the original amount by 0.68 to get our final answer.

$550\times 0.68=\pounds 374$
