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**
