Mike bought 100 goldfish for $14 each from his pet supplier. He gave 30 of them to his friends and sold the others at his pet store. The goldfish will each be sold at what price, so his income is 1.3 times the cost of the 100 goldfish?

I think income here means Total Sale at Pet Store- Cost of buying

Total Cost of buying= 1400
Income = 1820

Total Sale at Pet store = 1400 + 1820 = 3220

So sale price = 3220/70 = 46

joemama142000, correct me with the OA if I have misunderstood the question. _________________

Your mistake is here why do you need to sumarize income of pet supplier and Mike's Pet store? _________________
