(HP-65) Markup - % of price and % of cost
This program solves the price-cost-markup equation for any variable, and using either markup as % of price or markup as % of cost.

Recommended Key Labels

A: P
B: C
C: MU%
D: %P
E: %C

If you wish to follow the Finance Pac labeling convention, draw a box around P, C, and MU%, to represent variables that can be solved for.

Usage

Keys A, B, and C represent the variables in the equation: price, cost, and markup % respectively. To store a value, enter it into x and press the matching key. To solve for a variable, press the matching key with 0 in the x register.

To select % of price or % of cost mode, press either D or E respectively. The calculation mode is controlled by flag 1, with % of price represented by flag 1 cleared (the default state).

Examples

If a store is purchasing a product for $38 and selling it for$50, what is the markup over cost?

E (set % of cost mode)
38 B
50 A
C: 31.58%

A company purchases a finished good for $27 wholesale. They would like to make at least 24% margin on the sale of this good. What should the minimum selling price be? D (set % of price/margin mode) 27 B 24 C A:$35.53

RE: (HP-65) Markup - % of price and % of cost
Finally someone here interested about Markup% and Margin%
I called this Business Percent as " Profit on Pricing " calculations.

I have program this on serveral HP RPN programmable calculator here.

HP-12C

HP-11C

HP-41C

HP-67

Your program algorithm is very interesting compared to my version.

You have to get creative when you only have 100 steps, and things like LBL, GTO, and 1/x take 2 of them.

I was trying to come up with a way to have all four variables without the manual mode switch, but I don't think it can be done elegantly in the space available.

In line #11, the shouldnâ€™t the key code be 81 instead of 61?

/ =81
+ = 61

Dave

RPN rules!

You are correct, thanks. I was transcribing this rather late at night.

Pricing on Profit program for HP-12C took only 60 program steps.

Interesting. I'll have to give it a closer look, but that might fit on the 65. However, any GTO would become 2 steps and require a matching LBL - which would also be 2 steps - the 65 doesn't have built-in percent functions, so those would become more steps, and functions like 1/x are unmerged and take two steps (one for the shift key).
