  1. 1.4*.75 = 1.05
    so, a 5% final markup

  3. looks like you need to read about what a markup means
    A 40% markup means you add 40% to the price. So, if the price is $x, you wind up with

    x + 0.4x = x(1+.4) = 1.4x

    we don't need to carry around all those x's, we just need to know that the price after a 40% markup is 1.4 times what it started out.

    Same for the 25% discount. 1 - .25 = .75

  5. The easiest way to see it is to run an example:
    $10 dollar cost to store.
    40 percent markup would make the price $14.00.
    a 25 percent discount would be $3.50 off or $10.50
    Price to store is still $10.00.
    The new price gives them a $0.50 markup or 5% of $10.00

  7. 1+1 is 2. 2+2 is 4. Then you take the derivative and substitute it for a spontaneous reaction, where a single-celled organism is created and the 1.4-1.35 is .5, which is 5%

  9. So first there's a retail price and they put a markup of 40 percent.
    Lets say X=1
    40 percent also equals .4
    1*.4=.4 +1=1.4
    Then the store reduced the retail price of the ladder by 25%=.25
    1-.25=.75
    Take 1.4 and .75 and multiply them
    1.4*.75=1.05
    We can do 1.05-x(1)=.05
    .05*100=5%
    Hope this helped I just figured it out
