Don't think so ....

let the cost price be x

selling price (retail price) = 99

there was a 80% markup on cost price

1.8x = 99

x = 99/1.8 = 55

check:

cost price = $55

markup = .8(55) = $44

Selling price = 55 + 44 = 99

No. U would do 99 times 80%. So that means it would be 99 times .80 which equals 79.20. Then, you would subtract 79.20 from 99 and your answer would be 19.80 as the original price
