So I'm given the following information

Freight in........................$27,000
Purchases.....................$203,000
Beginning Inventory......$55,000
Purchase Discounts.........$4,500
Sales Returns....................$6,000
Purchase Returns.............$6,100
Sales Revenue...............$420,000
Ending Inventory.............$45,000

And the answer is 44.6%

but i'm not sure how it got that. I know the formula is Gross Profit/Net Sales Revenue=Gross Profit Percentage I must be setting up the formula wrong because i'm not even getting close to the answer.

Sales Revenue-Sales Returns give me Net Sales Revenue right?
Gross Profit is Purchases + Beginning Inventory - Ending Inventory - Purchase Returns - Purchase Discounts?
Freight in is an expense right so that makes it irrelevant?
