how to work out discounts - Step by Step
To calculate discount it is ease by using the following equations:
- Amount Saved = Orig. Price x Discount % / 100 (a)
- Sale Price = Orig. Price - Amount Saved (b)
Now, let's solve the questions stated above:
1) What is 40 percent off $500? Find the amount of discount.
Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $500 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 40.
Replacing the given values in formula (a) we have:
Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent / 100. So,
Amount Saved = 500 x 40 / 100
Amount Saved = 20000 / 100
Amount Saved = $200 (answer).
In other words, a 40% discount for a item with original price of $500 is equal to $200 (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 $500 when discounted 40 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?
Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $500 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 40 percent.
Using the formula (b) and replacing the given values:
Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,
Sale Price = 500 - 200
Sale Price = $300 (answer).
This means the cost of the item to you is $300.
You will pay $300 for a item with original price of $500 when discounted 40%.
In this example, if you buy an item at $500 with 40% discount, you will pay 500 - 200 = $300.
3) 200 is what percent off $500?
Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:
Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent /100. So,
200 = 500 x Discount in Percent / 100
200 / 500 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 200 / 500 = Discount in Percent
20000 / 500 = Discount in Percent, or
Discount in Percent = 40 (answer).
