To calculate the percentage by which the hat has been marked down, we use the formula:

[ \text{Percentage markdown} = \left( \frac{\text{Original price} - \text{Marked down price}}{\text{Original price}} \right) \times 100 ]

Substituting the given values:

[ \text{Percentage markdown} = \left( \frac{36.00 - 27.00}{36.00} \right) \times 100 = \left( \frac{9.00}{36.00} \right) \times 100 = 0.25 \times 100 = 25% ]

Therefore, the hat has been marked down by 25%.
