$142.60. You didn't read the question carefully is all it looks like. You figured out how much the markup would be rather than the price he paid for it. Subtract 230-87.40 and you get $142.60

So he will buy it for $142.60, mark it up 87.40, and sell it for $230.

This dose not look right....

The buyer is looking to purchase software for $166.66 to sale at a 38% markup price of $230. (or as close as you can get to it) This is a messed up question.

38/1oo*230=87.40. 230.00-87.40=142.60.the awnser is 142.60
