## How to calculate discount

You can easily calculate the discount or percent-off, as wel as, the Final Price of a product by following these steps:

- Multiply the original price by the discount percentage, then divide it by 100:
100.00 times 30.00 divided by 100 = 100.00 ×

^{30.00}/_{100}= 100.00 × 0.3 = 30.00 (This is the discount). - Subtract the discount (percent-off) from the original price to get the final price:

Final Price = 100.00 minus 30.00 = 100.00 - 30.00 = 70.00.

So, an item that costs **100.00**, when discounted **30.00** percent, will have the final price equal to **70.00**.

## How to figure out 30 off 100 - Step-by-Step

Problem: Calculate the exact sale price of an item originally priced at $100.00 and now has a 0.30% 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.

30% = 30.00% = 0.30

### Step 2 - Multiply the original price by the decimal

You will find the discount, or what value is being taken off the original price. You can use a calculator to do it.

100.00 × 0.30 = 30.00 (discount)

### Step 3 - Subtract the discount from the original price

Subtracting the discount from the original price, will give you the sale price of the item. So,

100.00 - 30.00 = 70.00
