Discounts

Often stores have sales and they give discounts off merchandise. Some stores even have store-wide discounts, like 15% off everything. Everyone likes a good sale!

The local clothing store needs to make room for their summer stock so they put all their spring stock on sale for 25% off. What is the discount on a pair of pants that cost $89?

Step 1: Convert 25% to a decimal = .25
Step 2: Multiply $89.00 x .25 = $22.25

The discount is $22.25 and the sale price is $89.00 - $22.25 = $66.765.


A pass at a water park is $58. Halfway through the season, the pass is discounted by 20%. What will be the discounted price?

Step 1: Convert 20% to a decimal = .20
Step 2: Multiply $58.00 x .20 = $11.60

The discount is $22.25 and the sale price is $58.00 - $11.60 = $46.40.
