Steps 4, 5, and 6 of the pricing process will be addressed in Chapter 14. What are steps 4, 5, and 6 of the pricing process?** 4.) Select and approximate price level. 5.) Set list or quoted price 6.) Make special adjustments to list or quoted price. Pg.362 What is meant by setting an approximate price level?
