You need to know the discounted price and either the discount amount or the discount rate. If you know the discount amount: Original Price = Discounted Price + Discount If you know the Discount Rate (percentage discount ): Original Price = 100*Discounted Price / (100 - Discount Rate)

If you are asking about a sale where prices are discounted. Multiply the percentage (X percent as X divide 100) by the original amount to find . To find the new price, subtract the discount amount from the original price.

Discount = Original Price - Discounted Price Percentage Discount = 100* Discount / Original Price

Discount = Original Price minus Sale price.

Take the amount saved, divide it by discount percentage then multiply the result by 100.

Percentage discount = 100*(1 - sale price/original price)

The name of the amount of money you save when you buy an item at a discounted price is called the difference of the original price. To find the difference, you simply subtract the discount price from the original price and that total is the amount of money you saved, the difference.

If you have only the sale price you cannot find the original price. You need to know the discount rate.

If the discounted price is $35, then you must reverse the process to find the original price. The original price would be 38.99 dollars.

The answer will depend on what information you do have.

The original price was $104.00

Original Price = Discounted price*100/(100-discount rate) = 3209*100/(100-37) = 3209*100/63 = 5093.65
