Amount Saved (Discount): \$12

Sale / Discounted Price: \$68

To calculate percent off use the following equations:

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

### 1) What is 15 percent (%) off \$80?

Using the formula one and replacing the given values:

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

Amount Saved = 80 x 15 / 100

Amount Saved = 1200 / 100

In other words, a 15% discount for an item with original price of \$80 is equal to \$12 (Amount Saved).

### 2) How much to pay for an item of \$80 when discounted 15 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 = 80 – 12

This means, the cost of the item to you is \$68.

You will pay \$68 for an item with original price of \$80 when discounted 15%. In other words, if you buy an item at \$80 with 15% discounts, you pay \$80 – 12 = \$68.
