## Percentage Off Sales

Stores most often discount their items or have sales expressed as a percentage off the original price. While they sometimes will put the value, other times there is a blanket discount which requires you to do the math.

This calculator will help you compute the discount after taking a percent off a starting price.

## What is the Percent Off Formula?

The percent off formula is:

### Work through a percent off calculation

Let’s say that you’re looking at an expensive item such as a laptop which normally costs **$1,200**. Today, you saw that there is a **17%** percent off sale.

Here’s how to work through the math:

So, today after the 17% off discount the price would be $996. To compute your savings as in the tool, just subtract the final price from the initial price:

So 17% becomes $204 in savings on the laptop. Not bad!

## Using the Percent Off Calculator

To compute the final price and your savings on an item or sale, first enter the **Starting Price**. Next, enter the **Discount** (in percentage) for the sale. Hit Compute Discount.

The result will appear below. You’ll see the **After Discount Price** you now will pay, plus the **Amount Saved** off the original.
