    Shouldn’t the formula be: Price=Cost*(1+Markup). Take for example, cost = $1, markup = 50%. Then the formula would be 1*(1+.5)=$1.50, which is the correct selling price at a 50% markup. However, your formula applied to the same example looks like this: $1/(1-.5)=$2, which is incorrect. $1 marked up 50% is not $2!

    A fair question, Tac. There are two ways to calculate markup – from Price and from Cost. The formula you describe is for figuring Markup from cost, while this example here is figuring it from the price.

    We do have a formula solver that calculates Markup from Cost, check it out in the “Get More Help” section below.
