Answer:$1800

Step-by-step explanation:

100% = $2000 10% =$200

1% = $20 so, when there is a discount of 10%, then the corresponding$200 will be deducted from the price.

and the actual sales price of the couch is then

$2000 –$200 = $1800 little more practice to show the general thinking behind % : let’s say the discount is 18%. what now ? well, we know how much 1% is. and we need then 18 times this 1% to deduct from the original price. 18% = 18 × 100%/100 or 100% × 18/100 so, for a couch of originally$2000 this is

18% = $2000 × 18/100 or$2000 × (1/100) × 18 or

($2000/100) × 18 whatever feels “nicer”, but all of these approaches do the same thing and lead to the same result. so, long story short : 18% = 18 × 1% = 18 ×$20 = $360 and the sales price of the couch is then$2000 – $360 =$1640
