    Answer:

    The percentage decrease of the shirt’s price is 15%.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1) divide 36.15 by 30.75

    30.75/36.15=0.85

    2) Multiply 0.85 by 100 to find the percentage between the original and sale costs of the shirt

    0.85(100)= 85%

    3) Find the difference between 85% and 100% to find the percentage difference

    100%-85%= 15%.

    Therefore, the answer is 15%.

    Hope this helps!
