For example, if "$1000 1/10 net 30" is written on a bill, the buyer can take a 1% discount ($1000 x .01 = $10) and make a payment of $990 within 10 days, or pay the entire $1000 within 30 days.

This calculation is the same regardless of what discount is used. For example "2/10 net 30" just means there is a 2% discount.
