We are only looking for the money left os we get 100%-85%=15% of 250.

Therefore the decoration committee has P37.5 left

First, you have the total which is P 250.00, then 85% of it is the part you have spend so,

P 250 x 85%(or simply 0.85)=P 212.50

Now subtract the total from the percent amount resulting to 15% of the total

P 250.00-P 212.50=P 37.50

Hope this helps =)
