# For the following items, calculate the missing information. Round dollars to the nearest cent and percents to the nearest tenth of a percent. Percent Percent Markup Markup Amount of Based on Based on Item Cost Markup Selling Price Cost Selling Price 9. Truck $15,449.00 ______ ___ ___ 38 % To determine To calculate: The Selling Price, the amount of Markup and percent Markup based on cost, for given, Cost =$15,449 and %MSP = 38%

Explanation

Given Information:

The Cost is  $15,449 and the percent markup based on selling price is 38%. Formula used: The Selling Price can be calculated using the following equation: Selling Price=Cost100%%MSP The amount of markup is computed as: Markup=Selling PriceCost The percent markup based on cost is computed as, %MCost=MC Calculation: Consider, Cost$15,449, and percent markup based on selling price is 38%, the Selling Price is:

SP=C100%%MSP

Substitute for %MSP=38% and  C =\$15,449 in the above equation,

SP=15,449100%38% =15,4490.62 =24,917
