Jada has a stand in the marketplace where she sells ground cumin. Her weekly expenses are $300, and she sells her cumin at a fixed price per kilogram. If she sells 120 kilograms of cumin, her weekly net profit is $600.What is the price of a kilogram of Jada's cumin?How much cumin does Jada have to sell to cover her weekly expenses?

Accepted Solution


                            P  = R - E
                            600 = 120x - 300
The value of x from the equation is 7.5. The answer therefore for the first question is $7.5. Then, the number of kilogram of cumin she needs to sell to cover the expenses is $300/$7.5 and that is equal to 40.
