Stores will often sell items for a discounted sales price. The store will discount
an item by a percent of the original price. For example, an item that originally
cost $20 may be discounted by 25%.
To find the amount of discount calculate 25% of $20. ($20.00*25/100=$5.00)
Subtract the discount from the original price to find the sale price.
($20.00-$5.00=$15.00 sales price).
