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
