Default A formula to discount percentage

I am trying to find a formula to discount by percentage rather than currency
on Excel 2007.

Example:

A1 B1 C1
£25 -37% = £15.75
£33 -23% = £25.41

I hope that you meant to say not =a1*(1-b1) but =a1*(1+b1) ?

If you mean by -37% a discount of 37% it would be easier to call column B
Discount and enter 37% and use the formula

=A1*(1-B1)

It would save you having to key a minus sign infront of every discount percent

And technically we don't talk about a negative discount, just a discount.
