**What is 35% of $83 ?**

**Math Tips **

`Just a review 35 is the whole number. You need to put the decimal behind the number to come to the right answer.`

`In math the word "OF" means multiply. When converting from a percent to a decimal always move the decimal place 2 places to the left. `

**First you need to know how to convert a percent to a decimal. 35%=35/100** or
**0.35**

Multiply** 0.35** by** 83**

**0.35 X 83=29.05** This would be the amount of the discount.

Next, subtract** 29.05** from **83**

**83-29.05= 53.95**

**53.95 is the total cost of the item after the 35% discount**

Hope I was able to show you an alternative.

100% - 35% = 65% = 0.65 ----> $83 · 0.65 = $53.95;

or

35% = 0.35 ----> $83 · 0.35 = $29.05 off ----> $83 - $29.05 = $53.95

Whenever you do something off something the formula is this:

Start Amount * (1-percent off/100) = Final Price

in this example start amount is 83, percent off is 35.

83 * (1- 35/100) =

83 * (1-.35) =

83 * (.65) =

53.95
