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

Amount Saved = $12 (answer)

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

Sale Price = $68 (answer)

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.
