Then you need to pick a variable to represent the quantity sold. Now, your profit is Revenue - Cost, right? Your revenue = sales price x quantity sold .... you have a number for the sales price, and a variable for the quantity sold Your cost = purchase cost (given in the problem) x quantity sold (that variable, again) then you want, Profit = 500; and profit = revenue - cost, so you have an equation: 500 = Revenue - Cost Put in the expression (with the variable) that you came up with for revenue, and the expression (with the variable) that you came up with for cost. Solve for the variable, and that's the quantity that gives profit o 500.
