The best way to answer the question is first to write it correctly:0) !

What is 35% of \$83 ?

#### 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

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
