## How to figure out a 20 percent discount on 5.99 - Step-by-Step

Problem: Calculate the exact sale price of an item originally priced at \$5.99 and now has a 0.20% 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.
