Formula:

%Markup on cost=%markup on selling price/100% - % markup on selling price

x = 70%/100%-70%

x = 70%/30%

x = 233.333%

cost $240 x (233.33%) = $800

???????????????

Does this seem right?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, December 8, 2009 at 10:06amThis is a simple question, why are you making it so complicated?

Cost to store = 240

markup = 70%

so markup = .7(240) = 168

so selling price = 408

or in one step ....

selling price = 1.7(240) = 408

(you have a 133.3% markup)

**matilda**, Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 2:02amCost + Mark-up = Price

cost=$240, mark-up=.7S, price=S

$240+.7S=S

$240=.3S

S=$800
