Can you find the reason that the following pseudocode function does not return the value indicated in the comments?
// The calcDiscountPrice function accepts an item’s price and
// the discount percentage as arguments. It use those
// values to calculate and return the discounted price.
Function Real calcDiscountPrice(Real price, Real Percentage)
// Calculate the discount.
Declare Real discount = price * percentage
// Subtract the discount from the price.
Declare Real discountPrice = price – discount
// Return the discount price.
should return discountPrice, not discount
