Did you read my answer to her questions? We start by dividing 1500 by 5 lbs per bag to get the number of bags which is 300 Since each bag costs 2.50 and we have 300 of them. we paid how much? Once you get that answer multiply by 30% or .30 to get the profit.

5 lbs per bag... How bags will you have? 1500/5 = 300 bags how much does she pay for the 300 bags? Can you do this step? If so, the next step is just multiplying that answer by .3 to find the profit.
