How to figure out a 1 percent discount on 0.87 - Step-by-Step

Problem: Calculate the exact sale price of an item originally priced at $0.87 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

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

0.87 × 0.01 = 0.01 (discount)

Step 3 - Subtract the discount from the price before the discount

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

0.87 - 0.01 = 0.86 (discount savings amount)

Discount Formulas
