Healthy food Inc sells 50lb bags of grapes to the military for $10 a bag.
The fixed costs of this operation are $80,000 while the variable costs of the grapes are $10 per lb.
Calculate the profit or loss on 12,000 bags and on 25,000 bags. Can you please walk me through on how to come to the answer. I am so confused.

MathUrgent please 
DrBob222,
How much will 12,000 bags of grapes bring in sales? 12,000 bags x $10/bag = $120,000
The profit is the sales  fixed costs = 120.000  80,000 = $40,000 profit.
Do the same for the 25,000 bags. Post your work and detail exactly what you don't understand if you get stuck.

Ms. Sue,
What about the variable costs of $10 per pound?

DrBob222,
I read that as $10/bag and not $10/lb. Disregard my work. Thanks Ms. Sue.
