To find the discount on a $5.00 jar of candy labeled 50% off.

## What is the sale price of the jar of candy?

What is the final price you will pay after the discount?

## Answer:

The discount is $2.50.

Therefore, the sale price of the jar of candy after the discount is $2.50.

To verify this calculation, you can multiply 2.50 by 2, and you will get the original price of $5.00, confirming that the discount is accurate.
