    Original price=$89
    Clearance price=$37
    89-37=52
    amount of decrease=52
    amount of decrease/original amount:
    52/89=0.58426966
    0.58426966×100=58.426966–>58%
    By 58% the price has been lowered.

    To find how much the price of the jacket has been marked down:
    Subtract 89 from 37 and that leaves you with a total of 52.

    When you divide 52 by 89 you are left with 0.5842….
    multiply that by 100
    leaving you with
    58.42 rounded to 58%.

    The percentage by which the jacket has been lowered in 58%.
