## How to Calculate Discounts - Step-by-Step Solution

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 50 percent (%) off \$5800?

Using the formula one and replacing the given values:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount % / 100. So,
Amount Saved = 5800 x 50 / 100
Amount Saved = 290000 / 100

Amount Saved = \$2900 (answer)

In other words, a 50% discount for an item with original price of \$5800 is equal to \$2900 (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 \$5800 when discounted 50 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 = 5800 - 2900

Sale Price = \$2900 (answer)

This means, the cost of the item to you is \$2900.

You will pay \$2900 for an item with original price of \$5800 when discounted 50%. In other words, if you buy an item at \$5800 with 50% discounts, you pay \$5800 - 2900 = \$2900

### 3) 2900 is what percent off \$5800?

Using the formula two and replacing the given values:

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

2900 = 5800 x Discount % / 100
2900 / 5800 = Discount % /100
100 x 2900 / 5800 = Discount %
290000 / 5800 = Discount %, or
