    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 = \frac{2}{1367} \times 100 \approx 0.15 %
