How to Calculate the Counter Offer

The formula to calculate the counter offer is:

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


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:

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

Subtract the discount amount from the original offer:

1000100=9001000 – 100 = 900

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