25%

Explanation:

First, find the difference between the original price and the sale price.

$64 - 48 = 12$

Then divide the difference by the original price to get the percent discount in decimal form.

$\frac{12}{64} = 0.25$

Multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percent decrease during the special.

0.25 * 100 = 25%
