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

Now, let's solve the questions stated above:

1) What is 15 percent off $20? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $20 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 15.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 20 x 15 / 100
Amount Saved = 300 / 100
Amount Saved = $3 (answer).

In other words, a 15% discount for a item with original price of $20 is equal to $3 (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 $20 when discounted 15 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $20 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 15 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 20 - 3

Sale Price = $17 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $17.

You will pay $17 for a item with original price of $20 when discounted 15%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $20 with 15% discount, you will pay 20 - 3 = $17.

3) 3 is what percent off $20?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

3 = 20 x Discount in Percent / 100
3 / 20 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 3 / 20 = Discount in Percent
300 / 20 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 15 (answer).
