EX: The buyer bought jackets for $198 with a planned markup of 42.5%. What is the retail price of the jacket? Retail = cost/(100% - MU%) 198/(100% - 42.5%) = 198/0.575 = $344.35 EX: Leggings retailing for $39.99 each were bought for a weekend sale. The planned markup was 58%. What was the cost price of the leggings? Cost = $39.99 X (100% - 58%) = $39.99 X 42% = $16.80 EX: Six dozen tanks had a total retail of $1,800. Each tank was ordered at cost of $13.50 each. What was the markup percent? 6 X 12 = 72 $1,800/72 = 25 MU% = (retail – cost)/retail = $ Markdown = previous price – new reduced price Markdown % = $ markdown / $ net sales EX: A sweater is marked down from $24.99 to $16.99. It sells at the reduced price. Determine markdown dollars and markdown percent. Markdown $ = $24.99 - $16.99 = $8 Markdown % = $8/$16.99 = 47.09% Net Sales = 1 X $16.99 = $16.99 EX: Four sweaters are marked down from $24.99 each to $16.99 each. They all sell at the reduced price. Determine markdown dollars and percent Markdown $ = $24.99 - $16.99 = $8 Markdown % = $32/67.96 = 47.09% 4 X $24.99 = 99.96 4 X $16. 99 = 67.96 $32 EX: A buyer marks down a cashmere dress from $590 to $460. After 1 week, the garment hasn’t sold so the buyer marks it down to $380 $590 - $380/$380 EX: A buyer received 200 pairs of designer jeans at $150 each. Fifty jeans sold at this price. The remaining jeans were marked down to $120 each for a promotion. During the promotion 85 units sold. After the promotion, the buyer priced the remaining units at $145 each. All remaining units sold at this price. Determine total markdown $, markdown cancellation $, net markdown $, net sales, and net markdown %. 200 units – 50 = 150 units on promotion Total MD $ = 150 X ($150 – $120) = $4,500 150 units – 85 units = 65 MD Cancellation $ = 65 X ($145 - $120) = $1,625 Net MD $ = total md – md cancellation = $4,500 - $1,625 = $2,875 Net Sales = 50 X $150 = $7,500 85 X $120 = $10,200 65 X $145 = $9,425 $27,125 Net MD % = MD$/NS$ = $2,875/$27,125 = 10.60%
