First we need to have an equation, all we have is:
Max Amount x Percentage = Sale Amount
Now if we derive it, we can say that:
Percentage = Sale Amount divided by Max Amount,

Therefore:
P 22.50/P 125
=0.18

Since we are looking for the percent, multiply 0.18 by 100 then the answer is 18%. Hope this helps =)
