**Discount**is what you save.

**Sale Price**is what you pay for.

**Discount example:**

A shirt for $29.99 with 40% off.

40% to a decimal is 0.4;

0.4x29.99= 11.99

Your

**discount**is $11.99

**Sale price example:**

10% off a CD for $19.99

Since a percent is out of 100, you take away 10 from 100. You will have 90 as an answer. That is the percent you pay. 90% as a decimal is 0.9;

0.9x19.99=17.99

You

**pay**$17.99

**Percents:**

50% of 70 is 35 because if you want to find 50% of any number you simply divide by 2.

35% of 80 is 28 because 25% is 20 because you can divide 80 by 4 or you can do this: (.25x80=20)

Now you need 10% more since 35-25=10. 10% of 80 is 8 because you divide by 10.

Add the numbers 20 and 8. You should have an answer of 28.
