How to calculate 2 percent-off of any number. How to figure out percentages off a price

Using this calculator you can find the discount value and the discounted price of an item. It is helpfull to answer questions like:

• What is 2 percent (%) off \$100?
• What is \$100 minus 2 percent (%) off?
• How to calculate 2 percent off \$100?
• How much will you pay for an item where the original price before discount is \$100 when discounted 2 percent (%)? What is the final or sale price?
• \$2 is what percent off \$100?

## Percent-off Formulas

To calculate discount it is ease by using the following formulas:

Amount Saved = Orig. Price x Discount % / 100 (a)
Sale Price = Orig. Price - Amount Saved (b)

## How to calculate 2 Percent-off

Now, let's solve the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 2 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 2 percent.

✅Solution:

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

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

Amount Saved = 100 x 2 / 100

Amount Saved = 200 / 100

In other words, a 2% discount for a item with original price of \$100 is equal to \$2 (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 2 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

✅Solution:

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of \$100 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 2 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 100 - 2

This means the cost of the item to you is \$98.

You will pay \$98 for a item with original price of \$100 when discounted 2%.

In this example, if you buy an item at \$100 with 2% discount, you will pay 100 - 2 = 98 dollars.

### 3) 2 is what percent off 100 dollars?

✅Solution:

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

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

2 = 100 x Discount in Percent / 100

2 / 100 = Discount in Percent /100

100 x 2 / 100 = Discount in Percent

200 / 100 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 2 (answer).
