Discount and Sale Price - Math Goodies
Answer: The discount is $2.50 and the sale price is $2.50. In Example 3, note that the discount and the sale price are the same amount! Do you know what fraction is equal to 50%? Could you have done this problem using mental math? The phrase, "50% off," is the same as, "1/2 off". So using mental math, you would get that one-half of $5.00 is $2.50.
