Multiply an Integer by a Percentage (arg!)

I know this should be simple, but it's kicking my butt!
Here is what I got...

editbox1 contains a string representing a dollar amount
example = [58]

editbox6 contains a value representing a discount off of the price in editbox1
example = Discount [20] %

How do I calculate this and represent it in another string?

listview1.subitems[1].add(IntToStr(StrToInt(editbox1.text) * percentage));

percentage:=StrToFloat(editbox6.text) / 100;

listview1.subitems[1].add(IntToStr(StrToInt(editbox1.text) * percentage));

I had to modify what you did, but you pointed me in the right direction...

listitem.subitems.Add(FloatToStr(StrToFloat(flatedit4.text) * (1 - (StrToFloat(flatedit6.text) / 100))));
