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 30 percent off $5? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $5 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 30.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 5 x 30 / 100
Amount Saved = 150 / 100
Amount Saved = $1.5 (answer).

In other words, a 30% discount for a item with original price of $5 is equal to $1.5 (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 $5 when discounted 30 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $5 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 30 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 5 - 1.5

Sale Price = $3.5 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $3.5.

You will pay $3.5 for a item with original price of $5 when discounted 30%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $5 with 30% discount, you will pay 5 - 1.5 = $3.5.

3) 1.5 is what percent off $5?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

1.5 = 5 x Discount in Percent / 100
1.5 / 5 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 1.5 / 5 = Discount in Percent
150 / 5 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 30 (answer).
