## How to Calculate Price with a Percentage Off

You can easily calculate the final price of an item and the amount you will save if you know the percentage off. This is a commonly used discount formula for products and services that reduces the price of the product by a percentage off.

### Step One: Convert Percent Off to a Decimal

The first step is to convert the percentage to a decimal number. This is necessary, so we can use the percentage in a simple formula.

To convert a percent to a decimal number, simply divide by 100. You can also use our convenient decimal to percent calculator.

For example, let’s convert 15% to a decimal number.

percent as decimal = 15% ÷ 100
percent as decimal = .15

### Step Two: Calculate the Savings

The next step is to multiply the decimal percent by the initial price to find the savings amount.

For example, find the savings of a \$40 item with a .15 decimal percent off.

savings = \$40 × .15
savings = \$6

### Step Three: Calculate the Final Price

To calculate the final price after the percent off, subtract the savings amount from the initial price.

For example, calculate the final price of a \$40 item with 15% off – remember this is a \$6 savings.

final price = \$40 – \$6
final price = \$34

You can also use our discount calculator to simplify this calculation.

Many companies will also offer a stackable discount, which means that they offer an additional percentage off of a product where a discount is already being offered. If this is the case, you can use the formula above and iterate through it again to apply the additional percentage off.

\$50.00 \$45.00 \$42.50 \$40.00 \$37.50 \$35.00
\$60.00 \$54.00 \$51.00 \$48.00 \$45.00 \$42.00
\$70.00 \$63.00 \$59.50 \$56.00 \$52.50 \$49.00
\$80.00 \$72.00 \$68.00 \$64.00 \$60.00 \$56.00
\$90.00 \$81.00 \$76.50 \$72.00 \$67.50 \$63.00
\$100.00 \$90.00 \$85.00 \$80.00 \$75.00 \$70.00

Offering a percentage off discount is commonly used to entice consumers to buy products or services. It’s important to understand how to calculate the dollar savings of a percentage off discount so that you understand how much you are truly saving.
