The spoilage rate on a shipment of 100 pounds of bananas is expected to be 10%. They were purchased at a cost of \$0.25 per pound. What should the selling price per pound be to achieve a markup of 16% based on selling price?

Sale Price = Cost / (100% -% Markup)

As total cost = 100 x 0.25 = \$25

Now ;

SP = 25 / (100 - 16) = \$0.3 approx

As anticipated spoilage = total quantity x spoilage rate

= 100 x 10% =100(0.1) = 10

Anticipated spoilage = 10 pounds

Selling price of periciables = 0.3 / (100-10) = 0.00333 per pounds

sorry a little mistake. wait I am correcting

Sale Price = Cost / (100% -% Markup)

As total cost = 100 x 0.25 = \$25

Now ;

SP = 25 / (100 - 16) = \$30 approx

As anticipated spoilage = total quantity x spoilage rate

= 100 x 10% =100(0.1) = 10

Anticipated spoilage = 10 pounds

Selling price of periciables = 30 / 90 = \$0.33 per pound
