Re: Selling apples
If two or more thoughts intersect with each other, then there has to be a point. #3 20100514 20:23:29
Re: Selling applesThink it's because when selling two Cortlands together with three Macs, the supply of Macs is exhausted before the Cortlands, so the 10 leftover Cortlands are sold for a lower average price. Effectively the 10 Cortlands earn him 2 * $2 = $4 , when they should really be earning him 5 * $1 = $5. #4 20100717 07:08:11
