(2) Sale Price = Original Price – Amount Saved

### 1) What is 40 percent (%) off \$30?

Using the formula one and replacing the given values:

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

Amount Saved = 30 x 40 / 100

Amount Saved = 1200 / 100

Amount Saved = \$12 (answer)

In other words, a 40% discount for an item with original price of \$30 is equal to \$12 (Amount Saved).

### 2) How much to pay for an item of \$30 when discounted 40 percent (%)? What is item’s sale price?

Using the formula two and replacing the given values:

Sale Price = 30 – 12

Sale Price = \$18 (answer)

This means, the cost of the item to you is \$18.

You will pay \$18 for an item with original price of \$30 when discounted 40%. In other words, if you buy an item at \$30 with 40% discounts, you pay \$30 – 12 = \$18.
