# 13 Markup Percentage

**Markup percentage** is what percentage of profit you make for each item you sell. If you want to make a 30% profit, for example, on each item you sell, you need to calculate how much it costs you to make that item. Let’s say it costs you $0.35 to make one scone. How much should you charge for that scone to make a 30% profit? Here is a formula you can use:

For the scone price, you would set it up like this:

$0.35 + ($0.35 30%) = Selling price

How would you put 30% into decimal form?

Here are some examples:

- 20% 0.2
- 87% 0.87
- 62% 0.62
- 15% 0.15

Returning to the problem above:

$0.35 + ($0.35 0.3) = Selling price

$0.35 + ($0.105) = $0.455, rounded to $0.46

If you want to make 30% profit on your scones, you would sell them for $0.46.
