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 $12? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $12 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 = 12 x 40 / 100
Amount Saved = 480 / 100
Amount Saved = $4.8 (answer).

In other words, a 40% discount for a item with original price of $12 is equal to $4.8 (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 $12 when discounted 40 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $12 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 = 12 - 4.8

Sale Price = $7.2 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $7.2.

You will pay $7.2 for a item with original price of $12 when discounted 40%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $12 with 40% discount, you will pay 12 - 4.8 = $7.2.

3) 4.8 is what percent off $12?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

4.8 = 12 x Discount in Percent / 100
4.8 / 12 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 4.8 / 12 = Discount in Percent
480 / 12 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 40 (answer).
