The Subtract Percentage calculator subtracts (discounts) a specified percentage, y, from an original amount, x.

Instructions:

• Insert the desired value for x, the original amount to be decreased by a percentage
• Insert the desired value for y, the additional percentage to decrease x
• The result will then be returned

EXAMPLE:

If you have some value you want to decrease by a percentage, you are in essence performing the following:

Result = x - (y/100 * x) = x * (1 - y/100)

As an example 22,606 discounted by 8.5% would be:

Result = 22606 * (1 - 8.5/100) = 22606 * 0.915 = 20684.49
