• See how to solve these questions just after the Percent-off Calculator (or Discount) below.

## 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.

Solution:

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

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

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).
