    a. An appropriate markup percentage is always required in cost-based pricing.

    Explanation:

    Under cost based pricing, the proper cost of manufacturing each product is identified and then the expected profit is added to get the selling price.

    Basically it is a strategy to control cost prices and not adjusting and earning the desired profit.

    As for example, if the net estimated cost of a product = $100

    And the manufacturer wants to earn a profit of $20 then, he will add this profit margin as 20% on cost to get the selling price.

    = $100 + 20% = $120
