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 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.
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).
