What I have tried:

It looks like claculate function is not working.

Most probably here net_price=price-2/100*price; this 2/100 evaluates in 0 and therefore net_price= price - 0 * price

Try net_price=price - 2.0 / 100.0 * price;

And of course, same you need to correct then in all the other sections.

Because 2 and 100 are integer values, so 2 / 100 is an integer divide - and since 2 is less than 100, the result is 0.
Replace them with the floating point equivalents, and it will start to work:
Java
public class Main
{
	public static void main(String[] args) {
	    double price = 100.0;
	    double net_price = price - 2 / 100 * price;
		System.out.println(price);
		System.out.println(net_price);
	    net_price = price - 2.0 / 100.0 * price;
		System.out.println(price);
		System.out.println(net_price);
	}
}

Function is working, you problem is that you don't know that a division of integers is an integer division with an integer result.
Java
net_price=price-10/100*price;
//                ^ offending integer division

you can rewrite it as:
Java
net_price=price-10*price/100;

to get desired result.
