## How Discount Calculator Works

**Calculating a Discount**

Final Price = Original Price - Discount Percentage

**Example**

Madonna wants to buy a Barbie DreamHouse toy that costs $125. The toy is on sale for 20% off. How much does the toy cost after the discount?

Final price after the discount is calculated as follows:

Final Price (after the discount) = Original Price - Discount Percentage

Final Price = $125 - 20%

Final Price = $125 - 25

Final Price = $100

**Calculating a Discount Percentage**

Rate of Discount = Discount % = ( Discount / Original Price ) x 100
