Camille bought 120 doughnuts for $60.00. Her profit was $48.00 once she sold 80 doughnuts. Write an equation that represents Camille’s profit (P), as a function of the number of doughnuts sold, n.

If she bought 120 doughnuts for $60....she must have paid 60/120 dollars = .50 for each

 

If she sold 80 doughnuts for $48 she made  48/80   = 6/10  dollars  = .60 for each doughnut sold

 

So.....the profit per doughnut sold, n, is represented by

 

P(x)  =   .10n
