Problem 6 :

Problem 7 :

William bought an item for \$80. The wholesale cost was \$64. What was the percent markup?

Problem 8 :

A video game has a 70% markup. The wholesale cost is \$9. What is the selling price and the amount of the markup?

Problem 9 :

Yolanda bought a video for \$19.80 that was priced at a 65% markup over the manufacturer’s cost. What was manufacturer's cost?

Problem 10 :

Randy buys a hat for \$16.50 that includes a sales tax of \$1.50. If the wholesale cost of each hat is \$12, find the markup as a percent? Subtract percent discount from 100%.

100% - 20%  =  80%

A student should pay 80% of the regular price, \$7.

Find 80% of 7. This is the student price.

0.80(7)  =  5.60

Subtract 5.60 from 7. This is the amount of the discount.

7 - 5.60  =  1.40

The discount is \$1.40 and student price is \$5.60.

Subtract percent off from 100%.

100% - 60%  =  40%

The sale price is 40% of the regular price, \$220.

Find 40% of 220. This is the sale price.

0.40(220)  =  88

The sale price of the bicycle is \$88.

\$15 - \$12  =  \$3

Think : 3 is what percent of 15? Let x represent the percent.

3  =  x(15)

Because x is multiplied by 15, divide each side by 15 to undo the multiplication.

3/15  =  15x/15

0.2  =  x

Multiply 0.2 by 100 to convert it to a percent.

0.2 ⋅ 100%  =  x

20%  =  x

The discount is 20%.

Subtract percent off from 100%.

100% - 40%  =  60%

The sale price is 60% of the regular price, \$185.

Find 60% of 185. This is the sale price.

0.60(185)  =  111

The sale price of the leather jacket is \$111.

Find the discount amount.

\$12 - \$3.60  =  \$8.4

Think : 8.4 is what percent of 12? Let x represent the percent.

8.4  =  x(12)

Because x is multiplied by 12, divide each side by 12 to undo the multiplication.

8.4/12  =  12x/12

0.7  =  x

Multiply 0.7 by 100 to convert it to a percent.

0.7 ⋅ 100%  =  x

70%  =  x

Neal’s discount is 70%.

100% + 40%  =  140%

The selling price is 140% of the wholesale cost, \$50.

Find 140% of 50. This is the selling price.

1.40(50)  =  70

Subtract the wholesale cost from 70. This is the amount of the markup.

70 - 50  =  20

By either method, the amount of the markup is \$20 and the selling price is \$70.

Find the amount of the markup.

80 - 64  =  16

Think: 16 is what percent of 64? Let x represent the percent.

16  =  x(64)

Because x is multiplied by 64, divide each side by 64 to undo the multiplication.

16/64  =  64x/64

0.4  =  x

Multiply 0.4 by 100 to convert it to a decimal.

0.4 ⋅ 100%  =  x

40%  =  x

The markup was 40%.

100% + 70%  =  170%

The selling price is 170% of the wholesale cost, \$9.

Find 170% of 9. This is the selling price.

1.70(9)  =  15.3

Subtract the wholesale cost from 15.3. This oi the amount of mark up.

15.3 - 9  =  6.3

The selling price is \$15.30 and the amount of the mark up is \$6.30.

Let x be the manufacturer's cost.

100% + 65%  =  165%

Yolanda's cost was 165% of the manufacturer's cost x.

Find 165% of x. This was Yolanda's cost.

165% of x  =  1.65x

Given : Yolanda bought the video for \$19.80.

1.65x  =  19.80

Divide each side by 1.65.

1.65x/1.65  =  19.80/1.65

x  =  12

The manufacturer's cost was \$12.

Selling price of the hat (Price before the sales tax is included) :

16.50 - 1.50  =  15

Amount of markup :

15 - 12  =  3

Think : 3 is what percent of 12. Let x represent the percent.

3  =  x(12)

Divide each side by 12.

3/12  =  12x/12

1/4  =  x

0.25  =  x

Multiply 0.25 by 100 to convert it to a decimal.

0.25 ⋅ 100%  =  x

25%  =  x

The markup is 25%. Apart from the stuff given above, if you need any other stuff in math, please use our google custom search here.
