i keep getting 30,000.

@ kostyan5: x% 0f D is xD/100, so t1 is xD/6000 isn't it? what am i doing wrong?

Yes, you are right. I didn't realize that percent (/100) doesn't cancel out at the end because there's on x in D. So we do need to express d1 and d2 in terms of x/100. I'm going to modify my solution above.
