Detailed Answer Key

Problem 1 :

A bicycle marked at $1500 is sold for $1350. What is the percentage of discount?

Solution :

Given : Marked Price is $1500, Selling Price is $1350.

Amount of discount  =  Marked Price – Selling Price

Amount of discount  =  1500 – 1350

Amount of discount  =  $150

Discount for $1500 is $150.

Percent of discount  =  (150/1500) ⋅ 100

Percent of discount  =  (1/10) ⋅ 100

  Percent of discount  =  10%

So, percentage of discount is 10%.

Problem 2 :

The list price of a frock is $220. A discount of 20% on sales is announced. What is the amount of discount on it and its selling price?

Solution :

Given : List (Marked) Price of the frock is $220,

Discount %  =  20%

Amount of discount is

=  (20 / 100) ⋅ 220

=  $44

Selling Price :

=  Marked Price – Discount

=  220 – 44

=  $176

So, the selling price of the frock is $176.

Problem 3 : 

A toy is on sale for 40% off. If the original price was $40, what is the new sale price?

Solution :

Given : Marked price is $40, Discount percent is 40%.

Discount amount  =  40% of 40

Discount amount  =  (40/100) ⋅ 40

  Discount amount  =  16

By subtracting the discount amount from the original price, we will get the new sale price.

New sale price  =  40 - 16

  New sale price  =  $24

Problem 4 : 

After serious negotiating you got $25 discount on a pair of sneakers. If the original price of the sneakers was $125, what percentage discount did you get? 

Solution :

Given : Discount amount is $25, Original price is $125.

Discount percent : 

=  (Amount of discount / Original price) ⋅ 100

=  (25/125) ⋅ 100

=  20%

So, the percent of discount i got is 20%.

Problem 5 :

If you buy 2 pens you get a 50% discount on the second pen. If 1 pen costs $2.30, how much will 2 pens cost you?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 1 pen is $2.30, discount for the second pen is 50%.

Discount amount for the second pen  =  50% of 2.30

=  (50/100)  ⋅ 2.30

=  1.15

Price of the 1st pen + Price of the 2nd pen : 

=  2.30 + 1.15

= $3.45

So, two pens will cost $3.45.
