  1. the second one is correct. A. 2 5/8.

    the first however asks for the profit, what does James make in total after selling them.

    He net purchase is $3.25.
    He then sells them for 2.25 each, 2.25 * 5 = and makes 11.25.
    His total money made since he spent 3.25, would be 11.25 - 3.25 which is 8.00 dollars. B.

  4. Did you even attempt to do the first one? The first one is eight. First, you multiply $0.65 by 5. Then you multiply $2.25 by 5. You subtract the multiple of $2.25, which is 11.25, by the multiple of $3.25, and you'll get eight. Please try next time instead of guessing.
