Easy to answer the question. The problem is the time given to answer all the questions not enough.

figure out how many times $50 goes into the $1000.00 profit. Once you find that no. (20) now divide the 20 into 4000.00 The Answer is 200 Just to double ck. 20x250 = 5000 This should explain how to arrive at the answer.
