## Solved Examples on Discount

**Example 1:** You are purchasing a watch whose list price is $400 and the selling price is $380. Find the discount rate and verify it using the discount calculator?

**Solution:**

Discount rate = (Marked price - selling price) / marked price × 100%

= (400 - 380 / 400) × 100%

= 20 / 400 × 100%

= 5%

Therefore, the discount rate = 5%.

**Example 2:** The marked price of a pair of earrings is $80.3. However, during a sale, the earrings are sold for $75.8. Find the discount rate and verify it using the discount calculator?

**Solution:**

Discount rate = (Marked price - selling price) / marked price × 100%

= (80.3 - 75.8 / 80.3) × 100%

= 4.5/ 80.3 × 100%

= 5.6%

Therefore, the discount rate = 5.6%
