Sample Problem

Ales bought a phone on sale. The original price was $150. He got 7% off the original price. What was the final price of the phone?

Solution

Discount = Marked Price or original price × percent of discount

The discount: 150 × 7% = 10.50

Thus, The final price = The original price - discount  =150 – 10.50 = $139.50
