## 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 15 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 15.

Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 5 x 15 / 100
Amount Saved = 75 / 100

In other words, a 15% discount for a item with original price of \$5 is equal to \$0.75 (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 15 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 15 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 5 - 0.75

This means the cost of the item to you is \$4.25.

You will pay \$4.25 for a item with original price of \$5 when discounted 15%.

In this example, if you buy an item at \$5 with 15% discount, you will pay 5 - 0.75 = \$4.25.

### 3) 0.75 is what percent off \$5?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

0.75 = 5 x Discount in Percent / 100
0.75 / 5 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 0.75 / 5 = Discount in Percent
75 / 5 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 15 (answer).
