Buying using the regular price, we have: $$48+48=96$$
Buying using the discounted price, we have: $$\displaystyle\{48}+{\left(\frac{{1}}{{2}}\right)}{\left(\{48}\right)}=\{72}$$. So, the discount is $$96-72=24$$ which corresponds to a percent discount of: $$\displaystyle\ \frac{{24}}{\96}=\frac{{1}}{{4}}={0.25}={25}\%$$
