Answer:

#$37.5#

Explanation:

Remember that we can write #25%# as #color(blue)(25/100=1/4#

#("Percentages are fractions with denominator 100")#

Now,we need to find the discount price

For that,we must subtract #25% "of 50"# from #50#

#:.rarr50-1/4*50#

#rarr50-1/cancel4^2*cancel50^25#

#rarr50-1/2*25#

#rarr50-25/2#

#rArr50-12.5=$37.5#
