How do you get this answer? Can you explain it to me, please. Thank you

• Algebra -

you take .80and mutiply by 99, then take that answer and subtract it from 99

• Algebra -

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
