Answer:

Think of #$60.00 - 20%# as #80% xx 60.00# so there is only one step.

#80% xx 60.00 = $48.00#

Explanation:

if you need to find the price of purchase that is advertised as #20%# off, you can reduce the suggested multiplication/subtract method a single step for a better chance of being correct.

If the item is #20%# off, it also means you will be paying #80%# to buy it. You also know the final price will be a little bit less than the original #$60.00#

Then you can multiply #8xx6=48# and without a calculator arrive at the selling price of #$48.00#, which is a bit less than the #$60.00#.
