Write the pseudocode (typed) to solve the following problem, which involves antique collector Joe’s acquisitions and sales. A closed box contains an unknown number of cards. Each card represents a sale. Written on each card is the merchandise item, the item’s original purchase price Joe paid, the tax Joe paid on the item, and the price Joe sold the item for before taxes. You are to prepare a report for Antique Joe. You may assume that no two cards have identical items. A sample report should look like the following:

Antique Joe’s Sales Report

Item Original Price Tax Selling Price Profit
Table with lion heads 1200.00 60.00 1400.00 140.00
Cherry chest 700.00 30.00 1030.00 300.00
Andirons 420.00 10.00 500.00 70.00
Victorian couch 1000.00 100.00 1400.00 400.00

Summary:
Number of sales 4
# of items with profit>200 2
Ave. Profit of items with profit>200 \$350.00
Total Original Cost: \$3320.00
Total Taxes Paid: \$200.00
Average Profit of all items \$227.50
