A store purchased 20 coats that each cost an equal amount and then sold coats at an equal price. What is store's gross profit on the 20 coats?

1 If selling price per coat has been twice as much the store's gross profit would have been $2400 2 if selling price per coat was$2 more, the stores profit would have been $440 SVP Joined: 05 Jul 2006 Posts: 1743 Followers: 6 Kudos [?]: 317 [0], given: 49 ### Show Tags 05 Nov 2006, 07:12 A store purchased 20 coats that each cost an equal amount and then sold coats at an equal price.

cost = 20x

sales price =20y

profit = 20(y-x)

from one

40y - 20x = 2400

20y - x = 120.......insuff

from two

20(y+2) - 20x = 440

y+2-1 = 22

y = 23......suff
