if a store uses a selling price-based markup of 40% and an item costs the store \$300, what selling price would the store set for the item?

Selling Price is \$500 Mark up on selling price has this Markup Amount / Selling Price = Markup Percentage.
OR Item Cost / (1.00 - Mark up Percentage) = Price.
Since the problem gave us the item cost and markup percentage, we use the 2nd Item cost = 300 selling price-based markup = 40% 300 / (1-0.40) = 300 / 0.60 = 500 Selling Price.
Selling Price : 500 Item cost : - 300 Mark up amt : 200 With the above figures, we can compute for the mark up percentage using the 1st formula.
Mark up amount / selling price = mark up percentage 200 / 500 = 0.40 or 40%
