  • Where MP is the Markup Price ($)
  • TC is the total cost ($) 
  • MU is the desired markup  (%) 

How to Calculate Markup Price?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Markup Price.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total cost ($). 
    1. The total cost ($) is given as: 75.
  2. Next, determine the desired markup  (%). 
    1. The desired markup  (%) is provided as: 33.33.
  3. Finally, calculate the Markup Price using the equation above:
