Hi there,

Let's use the following as an example:

The shirt Bob wants to buy is typically $10.00, but it's 25% off. What is/are the:

- Savings
- Sale Price

The sale price is probably easiest to calculate first. 25% off an item, means you're paying 75% of the original price. If the shirt was $10.00 to start with, 0.75*(10.00) is $7.50. So the sales price is $7.50.

The Savings is the difference between the original price and the sale price. In this case it is: $10.00 (original price) - $7.50 (Sale price) = $2.50 in savings.


Referenced below are a few examples of % savings problems for 6th graders. I hope they help!
