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.

Thanks,

Shana

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
