## How to calculate discount

Thus said, a discount is a reduction in the usual price for something $Discount=Usual Price - Sale Price$

Often discount is given as percentage of usual price. There are three parameters to find: a regular price, a sale price and a discount.

To find the discount in percents from the given regular price and sale price use this formula:
$Discount = 100 * \frac{Usual Price - Sale Price}{Usual Price}=100(1 - \frac{Sale Price}{Usual Price})$

To find the regular price from the given sale price and the discount percent, use this formula:
$Usual Price = \frac{Sale Price}{1 - \frac{Discount}{100}}$

To find the sale price from the given regular price and the discount percent, use this formula:
$Sale Price = Usual Price * (1 - \frac{Discount}{100})$
