Question

Kelsie sold digital cameras on her website. She bought the cameras for $65 each and included a 60% markup to get the selling price. To the nearest dollar, what was the selling price for one camera?

2 Answer

  • Find 60% of 65 then add it to 65:

    0.6 * 65 = 39

    Now add it to 65:

    39 + 65 = 104

    So she's selling camera's for $104 each.
  • Answer:

    $104.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We have been given that Kelsie bought the cameras for $65 each and included a 60% markup to get the selling price.

    The selling price of one camera will be equal to the cost of camera plus markup that is $65 plus 60% of $65.

    [tex]\text{Selling price of one camera}=\$65+(\frac{60}{100}\times \$65)[/tex]

    [tex]\text{Selling price of one camera}=\$65+(0.60\times \$65)[/tex]

    [tex]\text{Selling price of one camera}=\$65+\$39[/tex]

    [tex]\text{Selling price of one camera}=\$104[/tex]

    Therefore, the selling price of each camera is $104.
