Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope represents the markup rate, which is assumed to be linear (meaning the markup rate must be constant). In other words, cost is your xvariable and price is your yvariable. Together you have two points on the markup plot: (85, 112) (175, 238) These two points can be used to determine a line.
