1. well, they sold 480/20 = 24 shirts, so 24*4 = \$96
or,
they make 4/20 = 1/5 of the sales as profit
1/5 * 480 = \$96

3. They sold \$480 of tshirts, the ratio is 480;20, simplified to 24:1.
One shirt is \$20, but \$4 is the amount taken from 20 for the equipment.
Multiply \$24 by the \$4 taken for the equipment. (Equals \$96)
They make 4/20 (1/5) of the the sales as a profit for equipment.
Multiply 1/5 by 480 and you will get \$96 as the club's profits.
I hope this helped ya chirren
