$8.00


$21.60


$32.00


$72.00

Detailed explanation1: Simply take the sales price minus the unit cost, and divide that number by the unit cost. Then, multiply by 100 to determine the markup percentage.
Detailed explanation2: As an example, a markup of 40% for a product that costs $100 to produce would sell for $140. The Markup is different from gross margin because markup uses the cost of production as the basis for determining the selling price, while gross margin is simply the difference between total revenue and the cost of goods sold.
Detailed explanation3: When the cost is $5.00 you add 0.30 × $5.00 = $1.50 to obtain a selling price of $5.00 + $1.50 = $6.50. This is what I would call a markup of 30%. 0.70 × (selling price) = $5.00. Thus selling price = $5.00/0.70 = $7.14.
Detailed explanation4: Markup is the difference between a product’s selling price and cost as a percentage of the cost. For example, if a product sells for $125 and costs $100, the additional price increase is ($125 – $100) / $100) x 100 = 25%.
