The price after the original price has been reduced by a discount.

The sale price here is $8.00

If the discount is a percentage we must first work out the discount amount:

discount amount = original price × discount rate

then subtract that from the original price

Example: the shirt shop is having a 10% discount sale

The t-shirt's normal price is $23

discount amount = $23 × 10% = $2.30

then $23 - $2.30 = $20.70 (the Sale Price)
