I need help finding the nominal rate.

Early last year, the Agnessa Growth Fund ran advertisements in the financial pages of major newspapers. The "ad" had primarily empty space containing the simple message:

20,000 INVESTED IN AGNESSA INVESTMENT GROWTH FUND IN 1957
WOULD BE WORTH \$2.6 MILLION TODAY
What compound annual rate of return did the fund realize over the period ending December 31 last year?
For full marks your answer should be rounded to the nearest hundredth of a percent.

Cantu Excavating Liquidators bought 350 coats at \$80.00 each. In the first month, 175 were sold at the regular price of \$192.00 each. Another 152 were sold in the second month at a "one-third-off" sale price. The remaining stock, consisting primarily of defective units, were cleared out in the third month at \$75.00 each. The store's overhead is 50% of cost.

a) What was the average rate of markup?

Could anyone tell me the technique on this?!??!?!?!?!?
Help me find the Total cost for each month?
