Price Discounts

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).

Terms you may see for discounted items are:
50% Off
Save 50%
Discounted by 50%
