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

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
