Percent Applications Lesson 7.6 OBJ: To find markups, discounts, sales tax, and tips

Markup An increase from the wholesale price of an item to the retail price. Retail Price = wholesale + markup Retail = wholesale x (100% + Markup percent) Example – What is the retail price of a bracelet that has a wholesale cost of \$7 if the markup percent is 120%?

Discounts A decrease from the original price of an item to the sale price. Sale Price = Original price – Discount Sale Price = Original Price x (100% - Discount Percent) Example - A pair of jeans that originally costs \$42 is 25% off. Find the sale price.

Using Sales Tax and Tips
Sales Tax – A tax based on the amount paid for goods bought, usually added to the price. It is calculated using percents. Tip – An amount of money given based on the percentage of bill and service. It is calculated using percents. Example – The bill for your restaurant meal is \$23. You leave a 15% tip. The sales tax is 5%. What is the total cost of the meal? ** The tip is based on the food bill only. Do not include the sales tax when finding a tip.

Finding an Original Amount
Retail Price = Whole Price x (100% + Markup percent) Example – A store marks up the wholesale price of a printer by 80%. The retail price is \$120. What is the wholesale price of the printer?

Examples Find the retail price of a collectible figurine with a wholesale cost of \$12 that is marked up 75%. Mason buys a suit that is on sale for 20% off the original price of \$180. What is the sale price?

Examples The bill for a family’s meal at a restaurant is \$68. They leave a 15% tip. The sales tax is 6%. What is the total cost of their meal? A dress shop marks up the wholesale price of a prim dress by 115%. The retail price is \$180. What is the wholesale price of the dress?
