  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    The original cost of the product was $90.  There was a 162% markup.  In order to get the selling price, I like to take away 100 percent and simply add original price+(original price*62%).  After taking away 100%, I am left with 62%.  I then multiply the original cost ($90) by the remaining percent (62%), getting 55.8.  Following the steps that I originally wrote, I now add 90 to 55.8, getting 145.8.
