### Mark Up:

Mark Up Calculating a Sales Mark up What is a sales mark up? When a store purchases an item they buy it for a particular price. When they sell it in the store, they mark up the price so that they make a profit. Prices are often marked up a specific percentage. How can we calculate a sales mark up? A sales mark up is calculated when the store decides how much they want to sell a product for. Let’s look at an example to better understand how this works.

### Mark Up Example:

Mark Up Example Example: The local corner store bought fountain pens for \$3.00 each. They want to sell the pens for a 15% mark up. How much did they sell each pen for in the store? To figure this out, we want to find the percent of a number. The percent of a number is calculated using multiplication. Our key word “of” lets us know that the operation is multiplication. If we multiply the price that the store bought the item for times the percentage, we will have the amount that the store is going to mark up the price. Store purchase price x % of mark up = amount of mark up

### Mark Up Example (Cont.):

Mark Up Example (Cont.) Let’s do this work with the last example. Example \$3.00 x .15 = _____ Notice that we have converted the percentage to a decimal so that we can multiply easily. Percents and decimals are related. We drop the percent sign and move the decimal point two places to the left representing the hundredths place. Now we have our decimal and we can multiply. 3 x .15 = .45 Our mark up is 45 cents.

### Mark Up Example (Cont.):

Mark Up Example (Cont.) This is the mark up, but it is not the price that the store is going to charge customers for the pen. To calculate this number, we need to add the mark up to the price that the store paid for the item originally. Example \$3.00 = price store paid for the fountain pen .45 = amount of the 15% mark up \$3.45 is the sale price.

### Mark Up Example (Cont.):

Mark Up Example (Cont.) Example The store paid \$5.50 for a CD. If they sell the CD at a 45% mark up, what is the new sale price? There are two steps to solving this problem. 1. Figuring out the amount of the mark up 5.50(.45) = \$2.47 2. Figuring out the new sale price. Add the markup to the price originally paid for the CD. 5.50 + 2.47 = \$ 7.97

### Mark Up Worksheet:

Mark Up Worksheet Calculating a Sales Mark Up Worksheet Directions: Use what you have learned about sales and mark ups to answer each of the following questions. 1. Original price paid = \$7.00 Mark up of 12% What is the amount of the mark up? .84 What is the new sale price? \$7.84 2. Original price paid = \$12.00 Mark up of 30%. What is the amount of the mark up? \$3.60 What is the new sale price? \$15.60
