how to work out discounts - Step by Step

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

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).
