    First the absolute would decrease

    20 – 15 = $5  

    Then the percent decrease is the absolute decrease divided by the the original price (part/whole).  

    percent decease = 5 / 20 = 0.25  

    Multiply and divide 0.25 to obtain percent.  

    percent decease = 0.25 = 0.25 * 100 / 100 = 25 / 100 = 25%

    Ik I am late to this question, but I am going to answer it for those who are struggling.

    The model for this situation is X/20 = 180/100
