Enter 2 out of 3 below:
<-- Initial Price
<-- Markup %
<-- Final Price

A good is bought wholesale for $50.00 and then sold for $75.00. What is the markup rate?

Calculate Markup Amount:
Markup Amount = Final Price - Original Price
Markup Amount = $75.00 - $50.00
Markup Amount = $25.00

Calculate Markup Rate:
Let us define our rate as (x)
Markup Amount = Original Price(x)

Divide each side by Original Price to isolate x:
x =Markup Amount
Original Price

Plug in our numbers and solve:
x =$25.00
$50.00

x = 0.5

Convert to Percentage:
Markup Percentage = 100 x 0.5 = 50%
