Hi bobbym,

The solutions #5067, #5069, and #5070 are correct. Remarkable!

I think I have the worded the problem #5068 wrongly. I hope the explanation is clear now.

#5068. When a producer allows 36% commission on the retail price of his product, he earns a profit of 8.8%. What would be his profit percent if the commission is reduced to 24%?

Hi ganesh;

My back is very bad and I need to lay down flat on the floor for awhile to stop the pain. I am sorry, I will do the problem as soon as I can sit.
