To calculate discount it is ease by using the following equations:

Now, let's solve the questions stated above:

1) What is 2 percent off $42? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $42 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 2.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 42 x 2 / 100
Amount Saved = 84 / 100
Amount Saved = $0.84 (answer).

In other words, a 2% discount for a item with original price of $42 is equal to $0.84 (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 $42 when discounted 2 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $42 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 2 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 42 - 0.84

Sale Price = $41.16 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $41.16.

You will pay $41.16 for a item with original price of $42 when discounted 2%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $42 with 2% discount, you will pay 42 - 0.84 = $41.16.

3) 0.84 is what percent off $42?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

0.84 = 42 x Discount in Percent / 100
0.84 / 42 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 0.84 / 42 = Discount in Percent
84 / 42 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 2 (answer).
