Explanation:
Hi Kathryn....I am not sure whether it is clear from the context whether the author is meaning "mark-up" or "margin"...see below

Margin
The percentage margin is the percentage of the final selling price that is profit.
Mark-up
A mark-up is what percentage of the cost price do you add on to get the selling price.
These are different, a selling price with a margin of 25% results in more profit than a selling price with a mark-up of 25%.
