Pricing Practice Problems
1. Suppose a retailer would like to achieve a 50% return on sales on shirts that cost them \$8. What price should they charge?
2. Suppose the retailer sets up a clearance rack. Everything on the rack is 30% off. The discount will be taken at the register, and the regular price of the shirt is \$19.99. What price will customers pay for the shirt?
3. If a retailer buys the shirt at a wholesale price of \$8.00, what is their usual return on sales when selling the shirt at \$19.99?
4. How much is their return on sales when they sell at the sale price of \$13.99?
5. Suppose the retailer wanted to split the cost of offering the 30% discount with the wholesaler. They want their return on sales to be 50% and the wholesaler to eat the rest of the discount by lowering the wholesale price. What will the new wholesale price have to be?
1. Suppose a retailer would like to achieve a 50% return on sales on shirts that cost them \$8. What price should they charge?
Price = \$8.00 = \$16
1 – .5
2. Suppose the retailer sets up a clearance rack. Everything on the rack is 30% off. The discount will be taken at the register, and the regular price of the shirt is \$19.99. What price will customers pay for the shirt?
\$19.99 x .30 = \$6.00 OR \$19.99 x (1 – .3) = \$13.99
\$19.99 – \$6.00 = \$13.99
Discounted Price = \$13.99
3. If a retailer buys the shirt at a wholesale price of \$8.00, how much is their usual return on sales when selling the shirt at \$19.99?
\$19.99 – \$8.00 = \$11.99 = .60 The return is 60%.
\$19.99 \$19.99
4. How much is their return on sales when they sell at the sale price of \$13.99?
\$13.99 – \$8.00 = \$5.99 = .43 The return is 43%.
\$13.99 \$13.99
5. Suppose the retailer wanted to split the cost of offering the 30% discount with the wholesaler. They want their return on sales to be 50% and the wholesaler to eat the rest of the discount by lowering the wholesale price. What will the new wholesale price have to be?
\$13.99 – Cost = .50 OR If Return = 50% of Price, Cost = 50% of Price
\$13.99 \$13.99(.50) = \$6.995
\$13.99 – Cost = \$13.99(.50) (one of them has to round up – you choose)
\$13.99 – Cost = \$7.00
\$6.99 = Cost
