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

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $40 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 60.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 40 x 60 / 100
Amount Saved = 2400 / 100
Amount Saved = $24 (answer).

In other words, a 60% discount for a item with original price of $40 is equal to $24 (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 $40 when discounted 60 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $40 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 60 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 40 - 24

Sale Price = $16 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $16.

You will pay $16 for a item with original price of $40 when discounted 60%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $40 with 60% discount, you will pay 40 - 24 = $16.

3) 24 is what percent off $40?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

24 = 40 x Discount in Percent / 100
24 / 40 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 24 / 40 = Discount in Percent
2400 / 40 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 60 (answer).
