Original Price Definition
An original price is defined as the original price an object is sold at before a discount is applied.
Original Price Example
The following is an example of how to calculate the original price of a discounted item.
- First, determine the sale price. This is usually the price found on the sticker. For this example, we will say 50$ is the sale price.
- Next, determine the percent off. For this example, we will assume a discounted rate of 25%.
- Finally, enter these values into the formula above. This yields an original price of 66.67$.
A percent off, also known as a discount, is a reduction in the price of an item that makes the good “on-sale”.
Anything above 25% off is considered a great deal. Be wary of businesses increasing their price, then claiming a large discount that only gets it back to the original price before it was increased.
