How to calculate percent off. How to figure out % off any number. How to figure out percentages off a price.

### Inputs

Original Price: \$
Discount in Percent: %

### Results

Amount Saved or Discount: \$
Sales Price: \$

Using this calculator you can find the discount value and the discounted price of an item. See below detaled info on how to calculate it:

• 1) What is ten percent off \$100?
• 2) What is the sales price for an item if its original price before discount is \$ 100 when discounted ten percent (%)?
• 3) \$10 is what percent off \$100?

## How to work out percent-off - Step by Step

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

• Discount (\$) = Orig. Price x Discount(%) / 100 (a)
•
• Sales Price = Orig. Price - Amount Saved (b)

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.

Solution:

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

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

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).
