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


Begin the lesson by showing them an image of a market where buying and selling is taking place, then ask them what is happening in the image.

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 =    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

Meaning of Commission
Commission is a sum of money paid to a salesperson for every sales that he or she makes. 
Producers, manufacturers, businessmen, traders and so on often employ sales representatives to sell and promote their goods for them.

Examples
1. A salesman sold goods worth $5000. He was given 15% commission. How much did he get in cash?
Solution
The value of the goods = $5000
Percentage on commission = 15%
Commission in cash = 15% of $5000
              = 15   x   5000   =   750                            100

2. An agent was given a commission of 40%. If he sells a good worth #80,000, what is his commission?

Solution
The price of goods is = $80,000
Percentage on commission = 40
commission in cash
                       = 40  x 80000 =   32000                            100 


Begin the lesson by doing the first example for them.

  1. In order to clear the stocks or to increase sales, sometimes shopkeepers offer a certain percentage of rebate on the marked price for cash payments. This rebate is known as the discount. The customer or buyer pays the difference between the market price and the discount. You have explained this article very well about Discount and Commission. You can also take the help of online applications and websites for better learning. Thanks for this beneficial post.
