## How to calculate discount

You can easily calculate the discount or percent-off, as wel as, the final price or the proce after the disccouny of a product by following these steps:

- Multiply the list price by the discount percentage, then divide it by 100:
1.00 times 1.00 divided by 100 = 1.00 ×

^{1.00}/_{100}= 1.00 × 0.01 = 0.01 (This is the discount). - Subtract the discount from the price before discount to get the final price:

- Final Price = 1.00 minus 0.01 = 1.00 - 0.01 = 0.99.

So, an item that costs **1.00**, when discounted **1.00** percent, will have the final price equal to **0.99**.

Problem: Calculate the exact sale price of an item originally priced at $1.00 and now has a 0.01% discount. See, below, how to solve it in three steps.

### Step 1 - Convert the percentage discount to a decimal

Imagine the percent number with a decimal to the right of the last digit, then, move the decimal point two places to the left.

1% = 1.00% = 0.01

### Step 2 - Multiply the price before the discount by the decimal

1.00 - 0.01 = 0.99 (discount savings amount)
