## Original Price Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the original price of a good on discount.

OP = SP / (1-PO/100)

- Where OP is the original price ($)
- SP is the current sale price ($)
- PO is the total percent off

To calculate the original price of an item, divide the sale price by the value of 1 minus the value of the percentage off divided by 100.

## 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$.

## FAQ

**What is a percent off?**

A percent off, also known as a discount, is a reduction in the price of an item that makes the good “on-sale”.

**What is a normal percent off?**

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.
