basically the percent of change

169.99 - .40(169.99) = y

assume a value is 100% of itself, splitting it into 100 parts will make each part be 1%, so devide by 100. then you have the value of 1 percent and if you need 40 you multiply it with that
Hero

Don't mix things up. This is not percent change

Another way of calculating that would be to say: Discount of 40% means you pay (100-40)% = 60% So 60% of 169.99 = .60 * 169.99

Nice. Asnaseer, you're always full of great insight and perspective.
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
thx Hero - you too...
Hero
  • Hero
Is there a general formula for that approach? You using x and y as variables?
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
If price is P and discount is D% then you would pay (100-D)*P/100
