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 easiest way to find the new price after a markup is to take the markup percent (50%) plus the original 100% to get what percentage of the price you are actually paying. For this problem you are paying 150% of the original price, so multiply \$28.26 by 1.50. Your new price, without tax, is \$42.39.

2.) With a 65% markup, you end up paying 165% of the original price. If you multiply \$19.50 by 1.65 you get a new price of \$32.05.

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.

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

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.
