    Insofar as I know, this question is unanswerable without more information. The answer would be, based on the information given, "anywhere between 6% and 9%."

    Just for a bit of extra help, I found some very informative videos on this one site that gives training in practical math. If you're interested, you can click here to go there.

    If the business makes a profit of x%, then it ends up with a total amount of money equal to 1 + \frac{x}{100} times what it began with. The total profit percentage will be equal to 100[(1.06)(1.09) - 1].
