4)In 2009, Donna Manufacturing sold 100,000 widgets for $5 each, with
a cost of goods sold of $2. What is the company’s margin? Identify a
way that Donna Manufacturing can increase its profit margin?
GP= selling profit- cost of goods sold
Now we can calculate the margin
Margin(%)= gross profit / sales *100
5)If a product costs $100 and is sold with a 25% markup at a retail store,
what would be the retailer’s margin on the product? What should be
the markup and selling price if the retailer desires a 25% margin? Why
might the retailer be seeking to increase their margin?
100*1.25= $125 after markup
The retail margin is $25
