How do you find discount when you are giving original and sale price?

Subtract the sale price from the original price and get the difference of the two. Take the difference and then divide it by the original price to get a decimal. Multiply the decimal by 100 to get percent (discount). Example: Original price $20, sale price $15. 20-15= 5 5/20= 0.25 0.25x100= 25% To check your work, take the original price and multiply it by the discount. If the result is the same as the difference between the original price and the sale price, it is correct. Example: $20x 0.25 (25%percent)= $5 $20-$5=$15 (sale price). Hope this helps
