Discount (%) MA.7.1.1 Solve problems using fractions, decimals and percents Period 3
Definition A percentage / fraction off a regular price.
Example Examples of a discount of 25% is: $46.25 *.25 = $11.56 (Discount) Discounted Price = $34.69 [46.25 – 11.56] $18.36 *.25 = $4.59 (Discount) Discounted Price = $13.77 [18.36 – 4.59]] Multiply the original cost by the percent (%) of the discount. To figure out the discounted price you subtract discount amount from the regular price.
