## How to calculate a 1% discount on 0.99?

You can easily calculate the discount or percent-off, as well as, the final price or the price after the discount 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 the 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**.

## Discount Formulas

To calculate discount, as explained above, is easy by using the following equations:

Discount = Price Before the Discount × Discount % / 100

Final Price = Price Before the Discount - Discount
