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

Now, let's solve the questions stated above:

1) What is 50 percent off $10? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $10 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 50.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 10 x 50 / 100
Amount Saved = 500 / 100
Amount Saved = $5 (answer).

In other words, a 50% discount for a item with original price of $10 is equal to $5 (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 $10 when discounted 50 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $10 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 50 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 10 - 5

Sale Price = $5 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $5.

You will pay $5 for a item with original price of $10 when discounted 50%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $10 with 50% discount, you will pay 10 - 5 = $5.

3) 5 is what percent off $10?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

5 = 10 x Discount in Percent / 100
5 / 10 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 5 / 10 = Discount in Percent
500 / 10 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 50 (answer).
