A florist buys roses at 0.50 dollar a piece and sells them for 1.00 dollar a piece. If there are no other expenses, how many roses must be sold in order to make a profit of 300 dollars?

Answer Choices

Nice work!

Explanation

Each rose brings a profit of 1.00 dollar minus 0.50 dollar, or 0.50 dollar. The number of roses that need to be sold to make a profit of 300 dollars is 300 dollars divided by 0.50 dollar. This is 600 roses.
