3.

A car accessory is sold for ​\$54.89. The​ store's markup based on cost is 40​%.

​(a) What is the cost of the car​ accessory?

​(b) What is the rate of markup based on selling​ price?

1)a)Cost of each racquet=Purchase Price-Further Discount due to October purchase

=(\$79.12-25%)-31%=\$59.34-31%=\$40.9446

b)Markup=SP-Cost=\$57.37-40.9446=\$16.4254

Markup as a % of cost=(16.4254/40.9446)*100= 40.12%

c)Markup as a % of SP=(16.4254/57.37)*100=28.63%

2)a)If SP is \$100, markup is 35% of it=\$35, hence cost is \$65

If actual cost is \$0.99, Actual Selling Price will be \$100*0.99/65= \$1.52(approx)

b)Markup rate on cost=(1.52-0.99)/0.99*100=53.54%

3)a)If cost is \$100, markup is 40% of it=\$40, SP=\$100+40=\$140

If actual SP is \$54.89, Actual Cost=(54.89*100)/140=\$39.21

b)Markup rate on SP=(54.89-39.21)/54.89*100= 28.57%
