When dealing with percentages, we can work with decimals to handle this. So 1 times the price would represent 100 percent, since 1 x 113 = 113.

So, 45 percent of 113 would be .45 x 113 = 50.85

However, we are marking up the price with a 45 percent increase from wholesale so you have

113 + 50.85 = 1.45 x113 = 163.85

The manager should sell the couch at $163.85
