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 1 percent off $100? Find the amount of discount.
Suppose you have a Kohls coupon of $100 and you want to know how much you will save for an item if the discount is 1.
Solution:
Replacing the given values in formula (a) we have:
Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent / 100. So,
Amount Saved = 100 x 1 / 100
Amount Saved = 100 / 100
Amount Saved = $1 (answer).
In other words, a 1% discount for a item with original price of $100 is equal to $1 (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 $100 when discounted 1 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?
Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $100 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 1 percent.
Using the formula (b) and replacing the given values:
Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,
Sale Price = 100 - 1
Sale Price = $99 (answer).
This means the cost of the item to you is $99.
You will pay $99 for a item with original price of $100 when discounted 1%.
In this example, if you buy an item at $100 with 1% discount, you will pay 100 - 1 = $99.
3) 1 is what percent off $100?
Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:
Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent /100. So,
1 = 100 x Discount in Percent / 100
1 / 100 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 1 / 100 = Discount in Percent
100 / 100 = Discount in Percent, or
Discount in Percent = 1 (answer).
