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 12 percent off $400? Find the amount of discount.
Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $400 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 12.
Replacing the given values in formula (a) we have:
Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent / 100. So,
Amount Saved = 400 x 12 / 100
Amount Saved = 4800 / 100
Amount Saved = $48 (answer).
In other words, a 12% discount for a item with original price of $400 is equal to $48 (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 $400 when discounted 12 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?
Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $400 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 12 percent.
Using the formula (b) and replacing the given values:
Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,
Sale Price = 400 - 48
Sale Price = $352 (answer).
This means the cost of the item to you is $352.
You will pay $352 for a item with original price of $400 when discounted 12%.
In this example, if you buy an item at $400 with 12% discount, you will pay 400 - 48 = $352.
3) 48 is what percent off $400?
Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:
Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent /100. So,
48 = 400 x Discount in Percent / 100
48 / 400 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 48 / 400 = Discount in Percent
4800 / 400 = Discount in Percent, or
Discount in Percent = 12 (answer).
