**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 4:09pmThe vendor sold them at a loss.

He paid $300 for the breadfruits.

He sold 30 at $2. for a total of $60.

He sold 100 at $1.80 for a total of $180.

300 - (60 + 180) = $________ loss

**Steve**, Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 4:12pmIt is immediately clear that he lost money, since he sold each fruit at cost or less, and didn't even sell them all.

spent: 150*$2 = $300

Sold 130 and made

30*$2 + 100*$1.80 = $60+180 = $240

Lost: 60

Poorly set-up problem. Should have specified that some of them were sold at a profit, eh?
