Hi,

Thank you for using the site. I'll be happy to help you with this.

The selling price will be:

Selling price = 225 / (1 - 0.35) = 346.15

Thanks,

Ryan

Can you please show the steps to how you did that question?

Hi,

The formula for this is:

Selling price = Cost / (1 - Markup)

where "markup" is expressed as a decimal rather than a percentage.

Substituting 225 for the cost, and 0.35 for the 35% markup gives:

Selling price = 225 / (1 - 0.35) = 225 / 0.65 = 346.15
