Margin and Markup

This application uses the , , , and registers. Keeping in mind that the margin and markup registers are actually the same, any of these values can be calculated from the other two registers.

For example,

  1. Pressing stores 10 in the cost register.
  2. Pressing stores 20 in the price register.
  3. Pressing calculates the margin to be 50 percent.
  4. Pressing calculates the markup to be 100 percent.
  5. Pressing stores 30 percent in the margin register.
  6. Pressing calculates the price to be 14.29 (30% margin with a cost of 10, rounded to two decimal places).
  7. Pressing displays the cost of 10.
  8. Pressing displays the margin of 30 percent. Since the margin/markup register was last used to store the margin, recalling its value (using either button) will display the margin.
  9. Pressing calculates the markup to be 42.86 percent.
