# If you buy something What is 10 percent off means?

that you will be paying only 90% of the asking price. If the asking price is $1.00 you will only pay 90 cents

### How much is 50 percent off?

Okay. The 'full amount' of something is one-hundred percent. Half of one hundred is fifty. For example, if something costs five-hundred dollars and it was on special in a shop, it would cost two hundred and fifty dollars. So if an advertisement says something is fifty percent off, it means half off the original price.

### How much will something cost if the original price is 150.00 and then its 40 percent off?

40 percent off is the same as taking off 40/100 = 4/10 so 40/100 = 2/5 = two fifths. so divide 5 into 150 =30 and multiply by 2 =60 take the 60 from 150.00 and your answer is 90 ==================================== Easier way: 40 percent off leaves 60 percent on. "60 percent" means "0.6", and "of" means "times". 0.6 times 150 = 90

### How you can solve a 25 percent off?

percent off means a deduction from the regular price of something formula for getting the percent off: discounted price = regular price minus (% off multiplied by the regular price) Example: get the 25% off $100 25% off of $100 = 25% discount applied to $100 = $100 - (25% * $100) = $100 - (0.25 * $100) = $100 - $25 = $75
