After adding the 50% markup to the dress the selling price will be $28.26.

The selling price for the lamp after the 65% markup will be $19.50.

1 - a 50% markup on the dress would increase the price by $14.13, so the answer is $42.39.

2 - a 65% markup on the lamp would be $32.17 total.

For markup - you can also add the percentage to the original price 100%.  Dress $28.26 X 150% = 28.26 X 1.5 = $42.39

Lamp $19.50 X 165% = 19.50 X 1.65 = 32.175 = $32.18

1) The original price is 100% and there is a 50% markup, so the new price would be 150%

new price of dress= 150% of 28.26

= $42.39

2) new price for lamp (100+65)% of 19.50= $32.18

The dress selling price would be -$42.39

The lamp selling price-$32.05

You take the price and multiply it by .5, then add that answer to the original price.
