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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
would it be 3708?
anonymous
  • anonymous
How did you come up with that number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
well i tried subtracting 5000 by 30% and i got 4999.7
anonymous
  • anonymous
You need to subtract 30% from 100% and then multiply the 70% by the $5000
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooooh i get it now and i got 3500
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

$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. \[\frac{ $168-$130 }{ $168 } \times 100%\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Of course company wants to sell higher than the cost to make it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I would think that the 168-130 should be divided by 130 as it is the cost basis.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But, you get an answer your way. Something new for me.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i got 22.6
anonymous
  • anonymous
That would follow his formula
anonymous
  • 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
  • anonymous
Yep I got 22.6 too.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so is the second one 3500 or 3600?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3600, good job
anonymous
