## "Percent off" and discount

Actually, "percent off" and "a discount" are the exact same thing. Imagine it's Black Friday and all of the goods in a certain store are 75% off. Our sale calculator will figure out how much money stays in your pocket!

## How to figure out percentages

Our percent off calculator is a special case of a percentage change, more specifically it uses the percentage decrease formula. The process of calculating your discount is as follows:

- Enter the original price into our percent off calculator. For example, a TV set might originally set you back $5000.
- Determine the percentage discount - in our example store, everything is 75% off.
- The sum that stays in your pocket - your savings - is simply these two values multiplied by each other:
`75% * $5000 = 0.75 * $5000 = $3750`

. - The final price of the product on sale is the difference between the original price and savings:
`$5000 = $3750 = $1250`

. - You can also use the percent off calculator to determine how much
*more*you have to pay if the price of the product goes up! Simply type a negative value into the "off" box - our calculator will use the percentage increase formula.
