basically the percent of change

- Hero

169.99 - .40(169.99) = y

- anonymous

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

- pokemon23

oh

- Hero

Percent change has its own formula

- Hero

The formula I gave you is the "Discount Price Formula"

- asnaseer

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

- Hero

Nice. Asnaseer, you're always full of great insight and perspective.

- asnaseer

thx Hero - you too...

- Hero

Is there a general formula for that approach? You using x and y as variables?

- asnaseer

If price is P and discount is D% then you would pay (100-D)*P/100

- Hero

:D
