how to work out discounts - Step by Step

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

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
Amount Saved = $0.5 (answer).

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

Sale Price = $9.5 (answer).

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).
