3. D. The markup is Selling Price - cost. In this case, cost = purchase price + parts

110 - (25 + 40.79) = $44.21

5. A. Sale price = 22.49. Cost = 15.25. You're told to base the markup on the selling prince, so it's

(22.49 - 15.25)/22.49, then multiply by 100 to make it a percentage.

6. C. This works the same way as 3. Selling price - (purchase price + subcontractors fee + overheads)

74.99 - ( 32.55 + 22.00 + 7.56) = $12.88

7. B. Profit = Selling price - (cost + overhead). overhead is 35% of the Selling price.

Profit = 309 - 110 + 0.35*309 = $90.85

You should be able to do 8, 9 and 10, as they work the same way.

11. C. The new selling price is 29.99 - 12.00 = 17.99. So the markdown rate based on (original) selling price is (12.00/29.99)*100 = 40%

13 works the same way.
