    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.

    But, I think it means that they sold the flowers 40% more than the price they bought it.

    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.

    After you find the two numbers, find the difference between them, and there's your answer. I didn't finish explaining before.
