## 4.03 Solve Related Mathematical Problems

### Opening Cash Fund

• The opening cash drawer contains the coins and currency for the day’s business

• The till is over if there is more money than planned

• The till is short if there is less money than planned

### Completing a Sales Transaction

• The extension is the result of multiplying the number of units by the cost per unit

• Calculate sales tax and total

### Completing a Sales Transaction

2 running shorts at \$32.50 each

3 pair of socks at \$5 each

Tax is 7.5%

2 x \$32.50 = \$65.00

3 x \$ 5.00 = \$15.00

\$65.00 + \$15.00 = \$80.00

\$80.00 x .075 = \$6.00

\$80.00 + \$6.00 = \$86.00

### Types of Retail Sales

• Cash sales include cash or checks

• Debit cards are bankcards or ATM cards – funds are withdrawn from the customers checking account

### Cost of Merchandise Sold

• The amount a retailer actually pays for merchandise

### Factors Affecting the Cost of Merchandise Sold

• Cost may be negotiable due to discounts and terms

• Discounts – a reduction in the selling price offered by manufacturers and distributors to their customers to encourage prompt payment and stimulate purchasing

• Allowances – free merchandise given by a manufacturer for large orders as a means of goodwill and to encourage future purchases

### Explain the Difference Between Pricing and Markup

• Profit is the amount left from revenue (sales) after the costs of merchandise and expenses have been paid. Expenses include such things as rent, utilities, and salaries.

• Markup is the difference between retail price and cost. In order for a business to be profitable, its markup must be high enough to cover expenses and maintain desired profit.

### Explain and Calculate Gross and Net Profit

• Gross profit is a business’ income minus the cost of goods sold.

• Income is the total of all sales for the time period minus any sales returns and allowances

• Cost of goods (merchandise) sold is the actual amount paid to the vendors for the merchandise

• Net profit is what is left after all expenses have been paid by the business

### Calculate Retail Price

• The most basic pricing formula is the one for calculating retail price when given cost and dollar markup

RETAIL PRICE (RP)= COST(C) + MARKUP (MU)

\$500 = \$300 + \$200

RETAIL PRICE (RP) = COST(C) / 1-MARKUP %

(% markup)

\$500 = \$300 / 1- 40%

### Calculate Cost and Markup

• Formulas for cost and markup can easily be derived from the formula, RP=C+ MU.

Cost= RP – MU Markup= RP - C

\$300 = \$500- \$200 \$200 = \$500 - 300

### Calculate Markup Percentage

• Markup percentage based on retail. When markup percentage is based on retail, retail price always equals 100 %. To determine markup percentage, divide dollar markup by retail price.

MU% BASED ON RETAIL= DOLLAR MU / RP

40% = \$200 / \$500

### Calculate Markup Percentage continued . . .

• To determine markup percentage based on cost, divide dollar markup by cost.

MU% BASED ON COST = DOLLAR MU / C

66.67% = \$200 / \$300

### Reasons for Markdowns

• Buying errors. Wrong styles, color, sizes, materials, and/or quantities have been purchased.

### Calculate Markdowns

• Markdowns are used as a tool to stimulate sales, dispose of slow moving/discontinued merchandise, meet competitors’ prices and increase customer traffic.

MARKDOWN (MD) = RETAIL PRICE X MD%

\$25 = \$100 X 25%

### Find Markdown Percentage

• Markdowns are expressed as a percentage of net sales and cannot be calculated until merchandise is sold.

MD%= DOLLAR MD / NET SALES

1.8%= \$10,000 / \$550,000
