    Batman buys a combine harvester for £1500 from Joel and Ellie.
    On his first year he grows 258 mars bars and sells them for 52p each.
    Each year his stock raises by 8% and his prices raise by 4%.
    Each year he pays 7% tax.
    Every 4 years Cadbury's sue him £43.
    Every 7 years there is a zombie Apocalypse and he has to use half of his stock as weapons. How long until he starts making a profit?

    pain in the wosits ... I think your lecturer/teacher had too much fun in 1969

    A formula is easy until you get to the Apocalypse

    P = -1500+ 258x0.52x(1.08x1.04)nx0.93 -43n/4 - (apocalypse every 7 years)

    (I got a headache I have been doing maths for the last 9 hours and brain is gone ...)
