Percent off formula

The formula for percentage off is the simple equation that can be used to find the sale price of a product after the discount. It can be stated as:

Sale Price = Original Price × (1 - Percent Off)

The sale price formula can also be used as:

Sale Price = Original Price – (Original Price × Percent Off)

Saved amount = Original Price - Sale Price

Both formulas for sales prices are the same. You can use any one of them that seems easy to you. The original price refers to the price before the deduction of a discount.

How to calculate percent off?

Now that you know the formula for calculating the sales price of an item using a discount percentage, you should also know how to find % off amount without using a calculator. Here, we will illustrate the calculations with examples.

To calculate the percent off, follow the below steps:

  • Identify the original price and write it down.
  • Identify the % off and write it down.
  • Write down the percent off formula aka sales price formula.
  • Substitute the values in the equation.
  • Solve the equation to get the percentage off price.

Example:

Calculate 20% off 40?

Solution:

Step 1: Identify the original price and write it down.

Original price = 40

Step 2: Identify the % off and write it down.

Percent off = 20%

Step 3: Write down the percent off formula aka sales price formula.

Sale Price = Original Price – (Original Price × Percent Off)

Step 4: Substitute the values in the equation.

Sale Price = 40 – (40 × 20%)

Step 5: Solve the equation to get the percentage off price.

Sale Price = 40 – (40 × 20/100)

Sales Price = 40 – 8 = 32

So, the new sale price of a $40 item after 20% off would be $32. We can also calculate the saved amount by deducting the sales price from the original price.

Saved amount = Original Price - Sale Price

Saved amount = 40 – 32 = 8

It means you would save a total of $8 of you get a 20% off on a $40 item. You can also use our 20 off calculator above anytime to get a discounted price.
