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
Amount Saved = $0.75 (answer).
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
Sale Price = $4.25 (answer).
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).
