# maths problem watch

1. A shop keeper buys a box of 48 toilet rolls for £18. He sells them for 52 pence each. Find his profit as a percentage of the cost price
2. Bought 48 for £18
Sells 48 for £0.52 -> 0.52x48= £24.96

24.96-18=£6.96

Percentage Profit = (profit/cost price) x 100%

(6.96/18)x100= 38.6666666667

3.67% (6 recurring)

Im not sure if it's correct but its how I would do it

Hope this helped? (:
