the first bookstore knows from past expense records that it must aim for a markup that is 30% of the selling price of its merchandise.The store received a shipment of fairy tale books at a cost of $5.62 per book. What is the minimum selling price that the store should charge.

The minimum selling price will be 100% of the original price plus 30% of the original price.


The minimum selling price will be 130% of the original price.


130% of $5.62 = (1.30)($5.62) = $7.306 ≈ $7.31 per book
