From Ali: I have question regarding Margins, Markups and Profit
Purchase price = $ 10.00
Margin or Markup ?? = 40 %
Therefore Selling Price = 10/0.6 = $ 16.67
Profit ? = (16.6710)/10 *100 = 66.67%
or is the profit = (16.6710)/16.67*100 = 40 %
Can you please clarify What is Margin, Markup and Profit Answered by Penny Nom.

From Chet:
My salesman calculates a customers profit margin by dividing what the customer paid by what he sells for, then subtracting that answer from 1. For example a customer sells a product for $15. He bought it for $10. 15/10=.66 Subtract that from 1 and get a profit % of 33% Here's my question: If I want to figure what a reseller will sell a product for if he wants 40% margin(by the technique above), what formula do I use? Let's say I want to sell a product for 8.50, and I want the reseller to make 40% Answered by Penny Nom.
