Once the game starts, you will be presented a question to find the new price after the discount of the original price. Assume the question you have been given is “if a product originally costs \$800, then how much will it cost after a 5% discount.” The question looks quite hard at first looks but I assure you that the method is pretty simple. Firstly, you will subtract the discount value out of 100 (100-5) = 95%. This 95% is the value you need to pay and let’s convert it into simple numbers (integers). You will multiply the new percentage value you got which is 95% with the original price which is \$800.

When you do this, you get 76000. Now divide this value by a hundred because the definition of percentage is out of 100. 76000/100 will give you \$760. Some balloons will run onto the screen holding different answers, click on the balloon that carries the answer you got. Pick correct answers to earn points as the score on the top of the tab.
