    the percentage is \[percentage=\frac{(158 - 80)}{80} \times 100 \]

    @campbell_st The answer isn't coming out right for some reason.. It is supposed to be 49%.

    oops I gave you mark up on cost. For markup on retail markup = retail price - cost price = 158 - 80 = $78 percentage = 78/158 * 100 = 49.3%
