We can now discuss sales
price and discount.
A suit is regularly priced at $120, and
it is marked 20% off the regular price. What is the new price
for the suit?
Follow the previous examples and begin
by taking 20% of $120.
20% of $120 = .20
x 120 = $24.00
We call $24 the
discount.
We calculate the sales price by taking the regular price $120
and subtracting the discount $24…
$120 – $24
= $96
The sales price and cost of the
dress is therefore $96.
