    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?

    Actually, the general formula is x - %x = y x = original price y = new price

    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

    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

    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
