## What is 85 Percent Off?

Both “Percent Off” and “Discount” are the same thing.

**Percent off = Discount**.

“85 percent off” refers to a discount or reduction of 85 percent from the original price of a product or service.

It means that the price of the item is reduced by 85 percent, resulting in a lower cost for the consumer.

**Saved amount**= (Original Price * (\frac{85}{100}))

**Subtract**the Original Price from the 85 percent value.

**85 percent off!**

For example:

How much is 85% Off of $80?

Saved amount = (80 x (\frac{85}{100})) = $68

Final Price = 80 – 68 = 12

**Final Price $12**

**You Saved $68**

An item originally costs $80, a 85 percent off would reduce the price by $68, making the final price $12.

### Calculating 85 percent off without a calculator

The easiest way is to calculate 10 percent first of a value without using a calculator, by moving the decimal point one place to the left, Then add on another half of 10% of this number. Viola… you get the result of 15%, subtract the original price with the result of the 15% calculation which is the result of 85% of a number.

#### Find 10% of a number, and add on another half of 10% of this number = 15%

#### 85% = Original price – 15% value

#### Final Price = 15% value
