Best Answer

The formula for discount calculations is:

Price x .Percentage = discount

Then you subtract the discount from the price.

(Don't forget the decimal).


Let's say you want to buy a pair of trousers for £40 and you are given a 30% discount.

£40 x .30 = £12 discount

£40 - £12 = £28

You would pay £28 after the 30% discount on a £40 pair of trousers.
