 Cost of Sales & Mark-Up Calculation by: Colin I was given the sale amount and was asked to calculate the cost of sales if all goods were marked up by 60%. Sale amount was 24,400....Mark-up is the increase based on cost of goods so answer is:24,400 X 100/160 = 15,250Sales is 160 here as cost + mark-up = sales (100 + 60 = 160)Cost is 100 as mark-up is based on cost so cost is the subject of our equation, meaning the 100% portion of the equation. Or to put it another way, the 60% mark-up is based on 100% cost - mark-up is 60/100 of the cost.Best,Michael Celender

 Journal Exercise by: Mthandeni Hi please help by journalising the following:1. The business thus went ahead in obtaining a loan of R150,000. Interest of 11% for the year is still owing at year end.2. A business purchased stock to the value of R12,000, R10,000 of which was sold. The business sold this stock for R25,000. The business uses the perpetual stock system. The cost of sales entry was not recorded in the business records in the month the stock was sold.3. Stock purchased for R30,000 was recorded against the`purchases' account, and valued at R25,000 in closing stock at year-end. The difference of R5,000 was taken to the 'stock written down' account. However, upon discussion between managers it was agreed that the treatment of this valuation was not the same as the method of valuation used the prior year, and the difference had to be reversed.
