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

To calculate the percent off, use the following equations:

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

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

In other words, a 10% discount for an item with the 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.

You may have received a promotional code for a 10 percent of discount. If the price is \$100, what is the sales price:

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

Using the formula two and replacing the given values:

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 100 - 10

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

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

You may have received an Amazon promo code of 10. If the price is \$100, what was the amount saved in percent:

### 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
