## How to calculate 3 Percent-off

Now, let's solve the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 3 percent off \$500? Find the amount of discount.

Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of \$500 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 3 percent.

✅Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 500 x 3 / 100

Amount Saved = 1500 / 100

In other words, a 3% discount for a item with original price of \$500 is equal to \$15 (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 \$500 when discounted 3 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

✅Solution:

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of \$500 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 3 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 500 - 15

This means the cost of the item to you is \$485.

You will pay \$485 for a item with original price of \$500 when discounted 3%.

In this example, if you buy an item at \$500 with 3% discount, you will pay 500 - 15 = 485 dollars.

### 3) 15 is what percent off 500 dollars?

✅Solution:

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

15 = 500 x Discount in Percent / 100

15 / 500 = Discount in Percent /100

100 x 15 / 500 = Discount in Percent

1500 / 500 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 3 (answer).
