Holiday hardware purchased 60 items at a list price of $44 less 17% less 9%.
(a) Cost price per item:
(b) Total cost=$33.23*60=$1993.80
(c) The items were marked up 71% of the selling price. The selling price for each item was
Ten of the items were sold at a markdown of 30%.
Selling price of these ten items were at $56.82(1-0.30)=$39.77
(d) Selling price after first markdown was $39.77.
Five of the items were sold at a markdown of another 47%.
Selling price of these five items were at $39.77(1-0.53)=$18.69
(e) Selling price after second markdown was $18.69.
The remaining (60-(10+5)), i.e. 45 items sold at regular selling price, i.e. at $56.82 each.
(f) Total sales =($39.77*10+$18.69*5+$56.82*45)=$3048.05
(g) Effective mark-up rate based on sales=(Eventual total selling price-total cost price)/total cost price
