Percentage?
I did a search before posting and most percentage questions seemed to be here, so I hope it is alright here.

Suppose that a big screen TV costs $1367 and you have a$2 off coupon.

Can you think of this calculation as a discount ... and then calculate the corresponding percentage?

I have no idea what formula to use to find this as a percentage or anything. Any help is appreciated.

percentage discount = $\displaystyle \frac{2}{1367} \times 100 \approx$ 0.15 %
