How to work out percent-off - Step by Step

Calculate percent-off is very ease by using the following equations:

Now, let's learn how by example:

1) What is ten percent off $100?

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 10.


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

Discount ($) = Orig. Price x Discount(%) / 100. So,

Amount Saved = 100 x 10 / 100
Amount Saved = 1000 / 100
Amount Saved = $10 (answer).

In other words, a 10% discount for a item with original price of $100 is equal to $10 (Amount Saved).

Note that to find the amount saved, just multiply it by the percentage and divide by 100.

2) What is the sales price for an item if its original price before discount is $ 100 when discounted ten percent (%)?

Suppose you have a L.L. Bean coupon of $100 and you want to know the final or sale price if the discount is 10 percent.

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

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 100 - 10

Sale Price = $90 (answer).

This means the cost of the item to you is $90.

You will pay $90 for a item with original price of $100 when discounted 10%.

In this example, if you buy an item at $100 with 10% discount, you will pay 100 - 10 = $90.

3) $10 is what percent off $100?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

Sales Price = Orig. Price - Amount Saved. So,

10 = 100 x Discount in Percent / 100
10 / 100 = Discount in Percent /100
100 x 10 / 100 = Discount in Percent
1000 / 100 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 10 (answer).
