Imagine you need to buy a video game system for 169,99 dollars and you get a coupon for 40 % percent how much do you have to pay?
is their like a mathematical term
Actually, the general formula is x - %x = y x = original price y = new price
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
Don't mix things up. This is not percent change
Percent change has its own formula
The formula I gave you is the "Discount Price Formula"
ok thanks basically I just got like 2 packs of coupons for online shopping discounts
for free :D
Free coupons, lol They better be free or else you're not getting a deal
you want one
I have my own strategies for getting discounts
you might buy something special for you know who XD
The gift for my you know who doesn't involve physical gifts ormoney
anyways I will probably might used this to get a headset
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.
thx Hero - you too...
Is there a general formula for that approach? You using x and y as variables?
If price is P and discount is D% then you would pay (100-D)*P/100
