MATH: Discount and Sale Price

Posted on March 7, 2012. Filed under: Math | Tags: , , |

Proportions with percents can be fun to solve, but they’re more than that!

We actually use them in real life situations all the time.  Shopping is a great example of using proportions w/percents because we use them to calculate discounts and sale price.

A discount is how much you are taking off the price of an item.

A sale price is how much the item costs after a discount has been taken.

Finally, here’s a link to an electronic worksheet to practice some additional problems.
