32.761 %

Step-by-step explanation:

Percentage is any fraction or ration expressed as a fraction of 100.

Percentage is calculated using formula

If A has to be expressed as percentage of then it can be expressed as

A/B * 100 in percentage form .

For given problem price paid for sweater = \$36.20

original price of sweater = \$90.50

Problem is to express percentage of price for which sweater was on sale for.

It can be mathematically  expressed as

what is 36.20% of 90.5

percentage of price for which sweater was on sale for = (price paid for sweater/original price of sweater  ) * 100

It can be mathematically  expressed as

what is 36.20% of 90.5

=>  (\$36.20/\$90.50 )* 100= 32.761.

32.761 % of the original price sweater was on sale for.

For better understanding ,It can also be said that that if the original price of sweater had been \$100, then you would have got it at \$32.761 .
