Give an example of an inefficency of cost based pricing?

onsider an artist quoting the price for an intricate wall mural that would take her 20 hours to complete. Let’s assume she has a cost of $25 for paint. Not factoring in fixed costs, the total direct cost of mural creation is $25. Here is the calculation for direct-cost pricing with 100 percent markup:

Calculation = $25 + (100% of $25)

= $25 + (1 * $25)

= $25 + $25

= $50

Even at 100 percent markup, the quote would be $50. This means the artist would essentially be getting paid $2.50 an hour. Common sense would tell the artist that the $50 price doesn’t convey the full value of what is offered and that the customer would likely pay more.
