**Rashmi**, Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at 8:38pmHe buys 5 for $ 1, so he pays 20 cents for each.

He sells 3 for $ 1, so he earns 33 cents on each.

Now the cost price is given as C(x) = .20x

The revenue is given as R(x) = .33x

He makes $20 by selling the balloons.

Hence 20 = .33x

x = 20/.33

x = 60.6

x = 60 balloons
