Hi bluffmaster.roy.007

let :

x = the list price of the radio

y = the cost the radio = $30

The dealer gives a 25 percent discount on the list price of a radio ----> he sells it with price 0.75 x

still makes 40% profit on the cost price of the radio -----------------------> he gets 1.4 y

Can you continue ? :) - Aug 16th 2009, 05:16 AMbluffmaster.roy.007
