Meaning of Discount

Discount is a reduction in the price of an article. It is often a certain percentage of the actual price of the article.

Examples

1. A table clock cost $200, and a 10% discount is given for paying cash. What is the cash price?

Solution

The discount = 10% of $200 =

__10__x 200= 20

100

So Cash price = original price – discount

Amount = $200 – $20 = $180

2. The selling price of a shirt is $900. The trader gives 5% discount for cash. How much is the buyer paying.

Solution

The discount = 5% of $900 = $45

So Cash price = original price – discount amount

= $900 – $45 = $855

Calculating original amount on goods with discount

Sometimes mathematical question arise in which we are given the percentage discount and discounted amount, then we asked to find the initial amount of goods

Example

1. find the actual amount of a chair if the buyer pays $2000 and the discount is 5%

Solution

Let actual amount be x

Cash price =actual amount - discount

Discount = actual amount – cash price= x – 2000

Also

Discount =

__5__x actual amount 100

Therefore

x – 2000 =

__5x__ 100

100x – 200000= 5x

95x = 200000

x = 2105

Actual amount = $2,105

Start the lesson by writing a simple equation on the board and ask pupils to find the subject of formula
