If two or more thoughts intersect, there has to be a point!
Think 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.
perhaps another way to look at it:

Why did the chicken cross the Mobius Band?
To get to the other ...um...!!!
Initially Each 5 fruit contains 3Mac and 2 Cortland
After sold the 50 -fruits,he got $20 revenue.
Mac count s = 0
Cortland count is =10
If he sold 2 cortland per $1 then he will get $5 Revenue then total revenue is $25.
But still he is selling set of 5 fruits (5 cortlands for $2 dollar). Instead of selling 4 cortland for $2 ,he s selling 5 cortland for $2 so he losing revenue of $2when he sold last 2 set of 5 fruits.
Hi, nice to meet you.
can we say : to be sold 60 apples at 25$,
6 apples at 2.50$ (or 5 at 2.083$, since 25$/12 non equals 2)
3 at 1.25$ but then w/o caring about the sort of apples.
