I am getting a discount because the old tires did not last as long as they should have so I am getting a discount based on the amount the tire company figures I didn't get to use the old tires.

I paid 500 dollars for the old tires. So I figured that if I take

old price of 500.00 -

the discount of 230.00 for non use, that equals

270.00

So then I took 270.00 / 500 = 0.54

so that means that I am geting 54% of the value of the old tires returned to me. is that right?
