The easiest way of calculating discount is, in this case, to multiply the normal price \$100 by 15 then divide it by one hundred. So, the discount is equal to \$15.

To calculate the sales price, simply deduct the discount of \$15 from the original price \$100 then get \$85 as the sales price.

To calculate 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 15 percent (%) off \$100?

Using the formula one and replacing the given values:

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

Amount Saved = 100 x 15 / 100

Amount Saved = 1500 / 100

Amount Saved = \$15 (answer)

In other words, a 15% discount for an item with original price of \$100 is equal to \$15 (Amount Saved).

### 2) How much to pay for an item of \$100 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 = 100 – 15

Sale Price = \$85 (answer)

This means, the cost of the item to you is \$85. You will pay \$85 for an item with original price of \$100 when discounted 15%. In other words, if you buy an item at \$100 with 15% discounts, you pay \$100 – 15 = \$85.
