Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's 1.25. Checking it over, 20% of 1.25 is 0.25, and 1.25+0.25=1.50, so it's correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay... Oct  1.50 per flower Sept  20% of 1.50 = 0.2(1.5) = 0.30 : 1.50  1.30 = 1.25 per flower Part B : Sept : sold 900 flowers at 1.20 .....900 x 1.20 = 1080 40% of 1080 = (0.4)(1080) = 432 Oct : sold 700 flowers at 1.50...700 x 1.50 = 1050 40% of 1050 = (0.4)(1050) = 420 earned more money in Sept.
