Textbook Problem

For the following items, calculate the missing information. Round dollars to the nearest cent and percents to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Amount of Percent Markup
Item Cost Markup Selling Price Based on Cost
3. Automobile ____ $5,400.00 $12,344.80 ____

To determine

To calculate: The cost and percent markup of an automobile, if the selling price is $12,344.80 and the amount of markup is $5,400.

Explanation

Given Information:

The selling price of an automobile is $12,344.80 and the amount of markup is $5,400.

Formula used:

The cost can be calculated with the formula;

Cost=Selling PriceMarkup  C=SPM

The formula for find the percentage of markup cost is to divide the markup cost of an item by the

Cost is;

%Mcost=MC

Calculation:

The selling price of an automobile is $12,344.80 and the amount of markup is $5,400.

So, SP =$12,344.80 and  M=$5,400.

The cost of an automobile is given as:

C=SPM

Substitute for SP =$12,344.80 and  M=$5,400 in C=SPM:

C=SPM =12,344
