Description:

Using the standard percent increase and decrease formulas students will look at the pricing of college materials. Many college bookstores use the relationship: price = cost/(1 - mark up %) and this formula will also be used to determine pricing. This gives students a different way to look at pricing which requires using division instead of just multiplication and addition. Many college bookstores use this second method to determine the price to students for the materials bought in the bookstore. You might want to check with your college bookstore to determine the method used. These prices were calculated by the San Diego Mesa College Bookstore for materials which they sell.
