A store offers a discount of 30% on all reference books.

If a dictionary costs 12$before the discount, what is the dollar amount of the discount? Sep 27, 2022 ### 1+0 Answers #1 +6 +2 Hi Guest, Since a dictionary costs$12 before the discount, and we're trying to calculate the discount in dollar amounts...

We multiply the original price of the dictionary to the thirty percent that we're getting off.

Therefore,  $$12 \cdot \frac{30}{100}$$  will result in our answer.

Simplifying, our result is

$$\frac{12*30}{100}$$

$$\frac{360}{100}$$

$$3.6$$

$$\therefore$$ The dollar amount of the discount we recieve is \$3.6.

I hope this helped! Let me know if you have any questions :)
