    On problem one, what number is being referred to when they say, "the maintained markup percentage"?

    Well, the way I read it, I would think that we are subtracting 20% from the original sales amount. Then we would need to find the resulting mark up, but these numbers do not seem to match.

    Ya, the first one has me stumped. If the second one is stating that a total of 30% discount is given, how would you determine the final price?

    You need to subtract 30% from 100% and then multiply the 70% by the $5000

    $210 being discounted by 20% is $210 x 0.80=$168 So that is what the company wants to sell It cost $130 to make. \[\frac{ $168-$130 }{ $168 } \times 100%\]

    Of course company wants to sell higher than the cost to make it.

    I would think that the 168-130 should be divided by 130 as it is the cost basis.

    For the second one there is a 20% discount when selling so 5000 x (100%-20%) $5000 x (80%) $5000 x (0.80)=$4000 The price is being discounted again by 10% to a distributor so $4000 x (100%-10%) $4000 x (90%) $4000 x (0.90)=$3600
