Celia bought 12 apples, ate two of them, and sold the rest at 20 cents more per apple than she paid. Her total profit was $1.00. How much did she sell for each apple?

I need help with this question. I know that this is a bought and sold question. I know that she bought 12 apples. I think she sold(s representing sold) 2-s. But im stuck from their. I made one of those tables but im stuck after because I need to find the cost.

    Since this is 9th grade, you must know algebra

    let price of apple be x cents
    then selling price is x+20

    10(x+20) - 12x = 100
