### Inputs

Original Price of the Item: \$
Discount Percent (% off): %

### Results

Amount Saved (Discount): \$
Sale / Discounted Price: \$ Spanish Version

Using this calculator you can find the discount value and the discounted price of an item. It is helpfull to answer questions like:

• 1) What is five percent (%) off \$ten?
• 2) How much will you pay for an item where the original price before discount is \$ ten when discounted five percent (%)? What is the final or sale price?
• 3) \$0.5 is what percent off \$10?
• 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 5 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 5.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 10 x 5 / 100
Amount Saved = 50 / 100

In other words, a 5% discount for a item with original price of \$10 is equal to \$0.5 (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 5 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 5 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 10 - 0.5

This means the cost of the item to you is \$9.5.

You will pay \$9.5 for a item with original price of \$10 when discounted 5%.

In this example, if you buy an item at \$10 with 5% discount, you will pay 10 - 0.5 = \$9.5.

### 3) 0.5 is what percent off \$10?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

0.5 = 10 x Discount in Percent / 100
0.5 / 10 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 0.5 / 10 = Discount in Percent
50 / 10 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 5 (answer).
