Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 85 percent (%) off $100?

Using the formula one and replacing the given values:

Amount Saved = 8500 / 100

Amount Saved = $85 (answer)

In other words, a 85% discount for an item with original price of $100 is equal to $85 (Amount Saved).
