If candy bars that regularly sell for $0.40 each are on sale at two for $0.75, what is the percent reduction in the price of two such candy bars purchased at the sale price?

(A) \(2\frac{1}{2}%\)

(B) \(6\frac{1}{4}%\)

(C) \(6\frac{2}{3}%\)

(D) 8%

(E) \(12\frac{1}{2}%\)

Regular price of two candies =\(2 * 0.40 = $0.80\)

Discounted price of two candies = \($0.75\)

Difference = \(0.85 - 0.75 = $0.5\)

Percent reduction at sale price = \(\frac{0.5}{0.80}\)

\(= 6.25\)%

(B)
