# How to Calculate the Discount Price of a Pair of Shoes

In this lesson you’ll learn how to calculate the Discount Price of a pair of shoes.

I’m going to show you two simple methods for doing this.

Suppose you want to buy a pair of shoes and the original price of $95 has been discounted by 10%. How do you calculate the discount price?

### Method 1

Calculate the discount and take it away from the original price

So the amount of the discount is:

10% of 95

= 0.1 x 95

= 9.5

=$9.50

Then you subtract the discount amount from the original price:

So 95 – 9.5 = 85.5 which means the discount price is $85.50

### Method 2

Workout what percentage of the original price you will have to pay and then multiply that by the original price.

If the discount is 10% then what percentage of the original price will you pay?

Answer: 100% – 10% = 90%

So You will pay 90% of $95:

90% of $95

= 0.9 x 95

= 85.5

= $85.50
