Discount is what Amount of less given by the seller to the customer.
Discount $ = \dfrac{{Marked\,price - Selling\,price}}{{Marked\,price(M.R.)}}$
Discount $\% = \dfrac{{M.P - S.P}}{{M.P}} \times 100$
Discount is always given on Market price i.e. not on cost price.

Complete step-by-step answer:
Given marked price $ = Rs.900$
Given discount price $ = Rs.873$
After Selling the product discount is given on Market price
Discount $ = 900 - 873$
                  $ = 27$
Discount $\% = \dfrac{{discount}}{{Marked\,price}} \times 100$
Discount $\% = \dfrac{{27}}{{900}} \times 100$
Discount $\% = 3\% $
Total discount $ = 3\% $

Note:Discount $\% $ can be calculated by using calculation of Discounted money divided by the total money i.e. Marked price
Multiplied by $100$.
Marked price is what Amount Applied by seller After Adding Cost price and profit into that product to be sold it to the costumer.
