im not really sure about these

- Adi3

ok.

i am not that good at these stuff. but i will give my best.

- anonymous

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.

- anonymous

its very confusing I know ;-;

- anonymous

Are you sure there is no mistakes with the information provided?

- anonymous

no thats exactly how its been written

- Adi3

i dont get anything

- anonymous

I honestly dont know what to do -.-

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?

- anonymous

would it be 3708?

- anonymous

How did you come up with that number?

- anonymous

well i tried subtracting 5000 by 30% and i got 4999.7

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

ooooh i get it now and i got 3500

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

$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.

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

But, you get an answer your way. Something new for me.

- anonymous

i got 22.6

- anonymous

That would follow his formula

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

Yep I got 22.6 too.

- anonymous

so is the second one 3500 or 3600?

- anonymous

3600, good job

- anonymous

See my steps and you will see.
Calculate yourself if you see a mistake
-_-
