Answer:

The new price of the sweater is #$25.50#.

Explanation:

To determine the new price, we need to calculate the amount of the discount.

#x=30xx15/100#

#x=3cancel0xx15/(10cancel0)#

#x=3xx15/10#

#x=45/10#

#x=4.5#

Since the original price was #$30# and the discount amount is #$4.50#, the new price will be:

#30-4.5=25.5#
