Blossom's Flowers purchases roses for sale for Valentine's Day. The roses are purchased for \$10 a dozen and are sold for \$20 a dozen. Any roses not sold on Valentine's Day can be sold for \$5 per dozen. The owner will purchase 1 of 3 amounts of roses for Valentine's Day: 100, 200, or 400 dozen roses. The payoff for buying and selling 400 dozen roses at the full price is:
\$12,000
\$6,000
\$4,000
It cannot be determined.

The cost of the roses is \$4000. Subtract that from cost of the dozens that are sold at \$20 (full price).

You are given much extraneous information (information that is not needed) in the third and fourth sentences.

\$8000 - \$4000 = ?

You need to read the problem carefully.

I hope this helps.
