Occasionally at work I need to work out what the sale price / retail price will be for something would be (given that I know the cost and the % margin). That’s easy to work out. But sometimes I get given the sell / retail price and I know the margin used, and I then must work out what the cost will be.
Ordinarily if it’s a quick question I’ll just use and online margin calculator. But if I have a LOT of items to price – then Excel is the way to go.
