Again, we need to do a little math; if the cost of 500 tablets is $250 and you will learn to market up by 15% you would market up to $37.50 then you would add that to the $250 and you would get $287.50. Then to find out how much the cost is per pill, you would divide $287.50 by 500 tablets, which equal 0.575 cents per pill. If you have a bottle of 30 tablets, you multiply the 30×0.575, which equals $17.25 per bottle.
