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 40 percent off $15? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $15 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 40.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 15 x 40 / 100
Amount Saved = 600 / 100
Amount Saved = $6 (answer).

In other words, a 40% discount for a item with original price of $15 is equal to $6 (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 $15 when discounted 40 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $15 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 = 15 - 6

Sale Price = $9 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $9.

You will pay $9 for a item with original price of $15 when discounted 40%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $15 with 40% discount, you will pay 15 - 6 = $9.

3) 6 is what percent off $15?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

6 = 15 x Discount in Percent / 100
6 / 15 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 6 / 15 = Discount in Percent
600 / 15 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 40 (answer).
