    20% discount saves $45.00
    That means, 20% of the retail price of the desk is $45.00
    20% is one-fifth (1/5) in fraction
    Therefore, one-fifth of the retail price of the desk is $45.00
    Therefore, the retail price of the desk is five times $45.00
    5 x 45 = 225
    Therefore, the retail price of the desk is $225.00
    The actual amount paid was $225.00 minus the discount of $45.00
    225 - 45 = 180
    Therefore, the amount paid for the desk is $180.00
    Hope this helps
