The question is asking for the percent discount. The discount is what isn't counted in the full price, hence 845-695 which equals $150.
Now the discounted percent would be the discount over the original price, which will be 0.1775.
To convert that to a percent, you multiply that by 100, giving you 17.75%.
It asks for the percentage in a whole number, so rounding up would give you 18%.

Good Luck!
