    Percent word problem help

    Ms. Grace is buying a car with a sticker price of $23,874.Her total discount is 12% How much will she pay for the car?


    Now im trying to figure this out using the amount,base, and rate method but I can't seem to get a right answer, can some one give me some details on how would I break this problem down?
