Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ya, 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to subtract 30% from 100% and then multiply the 70% by the $5000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0$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. \[\frac{ $168$130 }{ $168 } \times 100%\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would think that the 168130 should be divided by 130 as it is the cost basis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For 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
