## 40 Off of 9.99

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:

9.99 times 40.00 divided by 100 = 9.99 × 40.00 / 100 = 9.99 × 0.4 = 4.00 (This is the discount).

2. Subtract the discount (percent-off) from the original price to get the final price:

So, an item that costs 9.99, when discounted 40.00 percent, will have the final price equal to 5.99.
