In this tutorial we will learn how to implement the Percentage Markup formula in Microsoft Excel. Markup formulas are mathematical expressions that calculate the amount by which the cost price of a product or service is increased to arrive at the selling price. The most commonly used markup formula in Excel to calculate selling price is (cost price x (1 + markup percentage)). This formula takes the cost price of a product or service and multiplies it by the markup percentage, which is then added to the cost price to arrive at the selling price.
