### How to Calculate the Counter Offer

The formula to calculate the counter offer is:

$\text{CO} = \text{O} – (\text{O} \times \text{D})$

**Variable:**

CO | is the counter offer amount ($) |

O | is the original offer amount ($) |

D | is the discount rate (decimal) |

**Calculation Guide:**

**1. Identify the Original Offer (O)**:

Let’s say the original offer is $1000.

**2. Identify the Discount Rate (D)**:

Suppose the discount rate is 10%, which is 0.1 in decimal.

**3. Apply the Formula**:

Calculate the discount amount:

$\text{O} \times \text{D} = 1000 \times 0.1 = 100$

Subtract the discount amount from the original offer:

$1000 – 100 = 900$

Therefore, the counter offer amount (CO) is $900.
