Answer

Part I

Regular Cost for a ream of printer paper: $8.99


Regular Cost for three reams of printer paper

RC = 3 reams * $8.99 per ream

RC = $26.97


Cost of three reams of printer paper without discount




Markdown Cost for three reams of printer paper

MC = $8.99 * 2

MC = $17.98


Cost of three reams of printer paper with discount

M% = 33 ⅓ %


Calculate Percent Markdown - three reams of printer paper with discount
