What is 50 percent off 50 dollars?
If something costs $50 and is on sale for 50% off, then how much would it cost? Here we will show you how to calculate how much you save (discount) and how much you have to pay if something you want to buy is regularly $50, but is currently on sale for 50 percent off.
There are many ways of calculating your discount and final purchase price. One way is to multiply 50 dollars by 50 percent, and then divide the answer by one hundred, then deduct that result from the original price. See illustration below:
SALE 50% OFF |
Purchase Price:
$50
Discount:
(50 x 50)/100 = $25.00
Final Price:
50 - 25.00 = $25.00
Thus, a product that normally costs $50 with a 50 percent discount will cost you $25.00, and you saved $25.00.
You can also calculate how much you save by simply moving the period in 50.00 percent two spaces to the left, and then multiply the result by $50 as follows: $50 x .50 = $25.00 savings.
Furthermore, you can get the final price by simply deducting .50 from 1 and multiplying it by $50 as follows: (1 - .50) x $50 = $25.00 final price.
