# Markup Markdown Calculator

## 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%

Markup Percentage = 100 x 0.5 = 50%
