Clyde has the chance to buy a piece of old Pennsylvania Dutch pottery that he thinks he can resell for \$500. If Clyde needs a 125% markup on cost, what price should he pay?

Is the answer 200 or 222.22?

500/225% = 222.22

Is my method correct or I am missing something? I get confused with the words resell, price, cost, sell, pay...
