Greetings visitor in Mississippi !

Here's the question you're asking about:

A patient presents a prescription for Ibandronate 150mg #3. Your pharmacy has a 35% markup and $5.66 dispensing fee. The wholesale price is $15.70 per tab. What will the retail price be for this prescription of 3 tablets.
A. $63.59
B. $47.10
C. $52.76
D. $69.25


Here is how to work out this one:


15.70 X 3 = $47.10 (Three Tablets)


47.10 X 1.35 = $63.59 (Apply the mark-up)


63.59 + 5.66 = $69.25 (Add in the disp. fee last)


Answer = D. $69.25
