## How to calculate 2 Off-of a number

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

1. Multiply the original price by the discount percentage, then divide it by 100:

100.00 times 2.00 divided by 100 = 100.00 × 2.00 / 100 = 100.00 × 0.02 = 2.00 (This is the discount).

2. Subtract the discount (percent-off) from the original price to get the final price:
3. Final Price = 100.00 minus 2.00 = 100.00 - 2.00 = 98.00.

So, an item that costs 100.00, when discounted 2.00 percent, will have the final price equal to 98.00.

## How to figure out 2 off 100 - Step-by-Step

Problem: Calculate the exact sale price of an item originally priced at \$100.00 and now has a 0.02% 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.

2% = 2.00% = 0.02

### 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 × 0.02 = 2.00 (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 - 2.00 = 98.00
