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)
