# Math Help - Are these asking me the same thing?

1. ## Are these asking me the same thing?

Quick history, I got both of these questions on the same test in my math 60 class. After getting the test back home and was reviewing it I realized I had done the questions exactly the same but was marked wrong on one (the second one).

My question is: Are these asking me exactly the same question or did I miss something?

1) The shoes cost $25.00 to manufacture. We would like a 35% markup on cost. What is the selling price for these shoes? (my answer:$33.75, marked correct)

2) The Flowers cost $25.00 to acquire. We sell it for a markup of 35% on the selling price. What is this selling price? (my answer:$33.75, marked wrong, instructor wrote \$38.46 as correct)

2. Uhh...I messed up the first time. Try this?
