# How do you calculate the overall price of a discounted item?

Like fore example if something costs \$98.00 and its 40% off, how do u calculate to see about how much is it going to cost? I thought u had to multiply like this 98x.40=? But i think im wrong
am just wonderin.

All received \$ 100, the right, so I'll skip it. Both had to pay Simon wrong: Simon worked 14.25 hours and was paid \$ 173.75 from 14.25 to 8 = 6.25 8 * 10 = \$ 80 6.25 * 15 = \$ 93.75 \$ 80 + \$ 93.75 = \$ 173.75 Both were "original price" of \$ 10 right, but did not explain how they got it: \$ 7.50, 75% of full rate 75% = 75/100 = 3 / 4 7.50 / 3 = 2.75 (which is how much 1 / 4 would cost) 2.75 * 4 = \$ 10 (which is 4 / 4 or 100% of the original price) http://funadvice.com/r/15dmnodmqcj

John worked 14.25 hrs and was paid \$173.75
14.25 - 8 = 6.25
8 * 10 = \$80
6.25 * 15 = \$93.75
\$80 + \$93.75 = \$173.75

They both got the "original price" of \$10 correct, but didn't explain how they got it:

\$7.50 is 75% of the full price
75% =75/100= 3/4
7.50/3 = 2.75 (which is how much 1/4 would cost)
2.75 * 4 = \$10 (which is 4/4 or 100% of the original price)

First you need to find out how much is 40% of \$98. Do this by calculating 40% x 98 which equals 39.2. <-- This is the discount. Lastly, take the discount from the original price so \$98 - \$39.20 = \$58.80. Hope I helped! :)

\$7.50 is 75% of the full price
75% =75/100= 3/4
7.50/3 = 2.75 (which is how much 1/4 would cost)
2.75 * 4 = \$10 (which is 4/4 or 100% of the original price)
