# Discount Calculator

An item that costs **$100**, when discounted **10** percent, will cost **$90**. The easiest way of calculating discount is, in this case, to multiply the normal price $100 by 10 then divide it by one hundred. So, the **discount** is equal to $10. To calculate the **sales price**, simply deduct the discount of $10 from the original price $100 then get $90 as the sales price.

To calculate percent off use the following equations:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount % / 100 (1)

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved (2)

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 10 percent (%) off $100?

Using the formula one and replacing the given values:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount % / 100. So,

Amount Saved = 100 x 10 / 100

Amount Saved = 1000 / 100

Amount Saved = $10 (answer)

In other words, a 10% discount for an item with original price of $100 is equal to $10 (Amount Saved).

Note that to find the amount saved, just multiply it by the percentage and divide by 100.

### 2) How much to pay for an item of $100 when discounted 10 percent (%)? What is item's sale price?

Using the formula two and replacing the given values:

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 100 - 10

Sale Price = $90 (answer)

This means, the cost of the item to you is $90.

You will pay $90 for an item with original price of $100 when discounted 10%. In other words, if you buy an item at $100 with 10% discounts, you pay $100 - 10 = $90

### 3) 10 is what percent off $100?

Using the formula two and replacing the given values:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount % /100. So,

10 = 100 x Discount % / 100

10 / 100 = Discount % /100

100 x 10 / 100 = Discount %

1000 / 100 = Discount %, or

Discount % = 10 (answer)
