48.1%

Step-by-step explanation:

The percent markup is defined as:

PM = (gross benefit/cost per unit.)*100%

We know that the cost per unit is $35 then we have: 108% = (gross benefit/$35)*100%

gross benefit = (108%/100%)*$35 =$37.8

This means that a game is selled by $35 +$37.8 = $72.8 Now we have: Markup percent = (gross benefit/selling price)*100% = ($35/\$72.8)*100% = 48.1%
