To subtract a percentage (%) from a number, you can use this formula:
Final Value  =  inicial value   

×  inicial value 
Replace the inicial value (5.80) and the percentage to subtract (40) in the formula:
Inicial Value = 5.80, Percentage = 40
Final Value = 5.80  (^{40}/_{100} × 5.80)
Divide the percentage (40) by 100 to get the percentage in decimal form. You can do this by just moving the decimal point 2 places to the left:
Final Value = 5.80  (0.4 × 5.80)
Multiply the percentage in decimal form (0.4) by the inicial value (5.80):
Final Value = 5.80  2.32
Subtract the result above (2.32) from the inicial value (5.80) to get the final value:
Final Value = 3.48 (Answer).
