**Discount**

A *discount* is a percentage that is subtracted from a number.
For example, a 10% discount of $30 is $3
(10% converted to a decimal is .10 and .10 x 30 is 3).
So an item that sells for $30 and is being offered at a 10%
discount can be bought for $27. ($30 - $3).

Now here's a problem for you:

If that item that sells for $30 were offered at a 20% discount, how much
would you have to pay for it?
