Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0assume 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Another way of calculating that would be to say: Discount of 40% means you pay (10040)% = 60% So 60% of 169.99 = .60 * 169.99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If price is P and discount is D% then you would pay (100D)*P/100
