Amount Saved (Discount): \$12

Sale / Discounted Price: \$28

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 30 percent (%) off \$40?

Using the formula one and replacing the given values:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount % / 100.

Amount Saved = 40 x 30 / 100

Amount Saved = 1200 / 100

Amount Saved = \$12 (answer)

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

### 2) How much to pay for an item of \$40 when discounted 30 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 = 40 – 12

Sale Price = \$28 (answer)

This means, the cost of the item to you is \$28.

You will pay \$28 for an item with original price of \$40 when discounted 30%. In other words, if you buy an item at \$40 with 30% discounts, you pay \$40 – 12 = \$28.
