Okay, this guy earn 15 cents for every glazed donut (g) sold, that could be reprensented as 15g, is this part okay?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i understand tht so far
zepp
  • zepp
Great! :) Now, this man doesn't only sell glazed donuts, he also sells jelly, j, and he earns 40 cents of profits per jelly donut, we can write that as 40j, that's cool too?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i got tht too!
zepp
  • zepp
Good! So what this guy is making would be the profit of these two sweets, hence Profit = 15g+40j
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohk got tht so i add those?
zepp
  • zepp
Yes

Now you are asked to get the maximum profit, if the person buy a dozen of donuts, 12, although he wants to eat at LEAST one of them.
zepp
  • zepp
but also wants max profits, therefore put 1 donuts of the cheapest, and 11 donuts of the most expensive, is that part clear?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no lol uhm ohk so i multiply 12 by 15? since he gets 15 cents for every doughnut he sells?
zepp
  • zepp
No, the customer wants to taste at least of one the donuts, but ALSO make the most profits possible.
anonymous
  • anonymous
soo confusing so i use 11 not 12?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i hope im not annoying u sorry if i am i juss dnt get it.
zepp
  • zepp
So put 1 donuts of the cheapest, so he can taste to at least one of each and the rest on the most expensive g is the cheapest, put 1 of g j is the most expensive, put 11 of j; 1+11=12 :D No worries! OpenStudy is a place to learn, the most important is to tell us what you don't understand :)

ohk so he made one donut cheap so he can eat it nd raised the price on the other 11 so he can still make the same amount of money as if he sold 12?
zepp
  • zepp
Well he wants to make the most profits, exact?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so he wants to make more than wat he wud have?
zepp
  • zepp
No no, do you agree with the statement above?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i guess so
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
zepp
  • zepp
Good, so the best way for him to make the maximum profit when a customer buy a dozen of donuts(12) is hope they buy 12 of the most expensive, true?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
zepp
  • zepp
but the customer wants to eat at LEAST one of EACH, and the seller wants to make the MOST profit, if he only put 1 donut of the cheapest, does it satisfies the situation?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes it does
zepp
  • zepp
So he should sell 1 of the cheapest, and 11 of the most expensive (that makes a dozen) so he can make the maximum profit he can get, letting the customer tastes to at least one of each, do you follow me?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so hes taking one of each of the expensive donuts nd making them cheaper so tht the customers can try one of each nd he still will make the most profit
zepp
  • zepp
so g=1 and j=11 :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes ohk now wat do i do with those?
zepp
  • zepp
You plug them in the equation we computed above :D Profit = 15g+40j :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohk 15*1+40*11?
zepp
  • zepp
Excellent! :D Good job :)
zepp
  • zepp
And remember those are cents, you have to transform them into dollars to get your answer :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
nd i end up with 15+440?
zepp
  • zepp
Right!
anonymous
  • anonymous
4.55?
zepp
  • zepp
You got your answer!
