The wholesale cost of #30 drug 'E' is $47.66. Your pharmacy charges a 12% mark-up and a flat $6.50 dispensing fee. How much will the patient be charged for this prescription?

47.66 + 12% = 53.38 53.38 + 6.5 = 59.88 should be the answer

Another way to figure markups by: Jenny

You can also figure the 12% markup this way:

Wholesale cost of $47.66 x 1.12 (112%) = $53.38

Then add the distribution/professional fee of $6.50 to get $59.88.

You're trying to find 112% of the wholesale cost. By using 100% of the original cost (the wholesale price) and adding in the 12% markup, you create a multiplier of 1.12 after converting to a decimal.

This simplifies the problem and eliminates a math step. Less room for errors!

The $5.72.... by: T

$5.72 is 12% of $47.66

12% Markup of 47.66 -> (47.66)x(.12)= 5.7192

Round that number up to 5.72

The retail price is 12% of 47.66 (the wholesale price), which is $5.72

47.66+5.72 = $53.38

On top of that there is a $6.50 dispensing fee for all orders.

53.38+6.50 = $59.88 (The final Retail Price)
