To calculate discount it is ease by using the following equations:

Now, let's solve the questions stated above:

1) What is 8 percent off $17? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $17 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 8.


Replacing the given values in formula (a) we have:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent / 100. So,

Amount Saved = 17 x 8 / 100
Amount Saved = 136 / 100
Amount Saved = $1.36 (answer).

In other words, a 8% discount for a item with original price of $17 is equal to $1.36 (Amount Saved).

Note that to find the amount saved, just multiply it by the percentage and divide by 100.

2) How much to pay for an item of $17 when discounted 8 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $17 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 8 percent.

Using the formula (b) and replacing the given values:

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 17 - 1.36

Sale Price = $15.64 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $15.64.

You will pay $15.64 for a item with original price of $17 when discounted 8%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $17 with 8% discount, you will pay 17 - 1.36 = $15.64.

3) 1.36 is what percent off $17?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent /100. So,

1.36 = 17 x Discount in Percent / 100
1.36 / 17 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 1.36 / 17 = Discount in Percent
136 / 17 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 8 (answer).
