# Question 17941

Jan 31, 2018

The amount of discount would be $27. #### Explanation: We know that the jacket's full price is $90.
If we take $90 and multiply it by $0.70$(we get $0.70$by dividing $\frac{70}{100}$), this will give us our full price of the jacket after the discount, which is $63.
Now, if we take that $70$ and subtract $100 - 70$ we will get $30$. Divide $\frac{30}{100}$ we get $0.30$.
Multiply $90 by $0.30$and we will get the amount of our discount, $27.
You can check your answer by adding $63 + 27$, which should add up to our original price. In this case, \$90#.
