It's 1.25. Checking it over, 20% of 1.25 is 0.25, and 1.25+0.25=1.50, so it's correct.

I don't really get what they mean by they earned 40% of the selling price of each flower.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But, I think it means that they sold the flowers 40% more than the price they bought it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Let me think it over some more.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i thought it meant from the total they earned 40% of it
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think you are correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So then, multiply the cost of the flowers by the number of flowers they sold and by 0.4 for each month and compare.

Okay... 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.
