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

Now, let's solve the questions stated above:

1) What is 20 percent off $2? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $2 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 20.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 2 x 20 / 100
Amount Saved = 40 / 100
Amount Saved = $0.4 (answer).

In other words, a 20% discount for a item with original price of $2 is equal to $0.4 (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 $2 when discounted 20 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $2 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 20 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 2 - 0.4

Sale Price = $1.6 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $1.6.

You will pay $1.6 for a item with original price of $2 when discounted 20%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $2 with 20% discount, you will pay 2 - 0.4 = $1.6.

3) 0.4 is what percent off $2?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

0.4 = 2 x Discount in Percent / 100
0.4 / 2 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 0.4 / 2 = Discount in Percent
40 / 2 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 20 (answer).
