police. We need to start, um, this problem by finding out what the amount is that we're paying. So we have four payments of 39 95. So to figure out the total amount that we pay, we're gonna take 39 95. Multiply it by four to give us I'm 100 in $59 in 80 cents. Now to determine the discount, we're going to take the original price of $249.95. We're going to subtract that from the price that we're paying of $159 in 80 cents. We get a difference of $90.15. So the discount he's $90.15 6 now to find the discount rates, we need to take our difference of $90. 15 cents said it equal to the original amount of $249 in 95 cents. Multiply times x X is our discount rate. I want to get X alone, some dividing each side by 249 95. When I do that, I get it being equal 2.36 to convert this to a percentage, move the decimal two spaces over to the right, which gives me a discount rate of 36%
