## FAQs on Percent-off

### What's 10 percent-off \$500?

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

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

Amount Saved = 500 x 10 / 100

Amount Saved = 5000 / 100

In other words, a 10% discount for a item with original price of \$500 is equal to \$50 (Amount Saved).

Note that to find the amount saved, just multiply it by the percentage and divide by 100.

### What's the final price of an item of \$500 when discounted \$50?

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 500 - 50

This means the cost of the item to you is \$450.

You will pay \$450 for a item with original price of \$500 when discounted 10%.

In this example, if you buy an item at \$500 with 10% discount, you will pay 500 - 50 = 450 dollars.

### 50 is what percent off 500 dollars?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

50 = 500 x Discount in Percent / 100

50 / 500 = Discount in Percent /100

100 x 50 / 500 = Discount in Percent

5000 / 500 = Discount in Percent, or
