A clothing store bought 100 shirts for $x. If the store sold all of the shirts at the same price for a total of $50, what is the store’s profit per shirt, in dollars, in terms of x?

(A) \(50 - \frac{x}{100}\)

(B) \(50 - x\)

(C) \(5 - x\)

(D) \(0.5 - x\)

(E) \(0.5 - \frac{x}{100}\)

# of shirts=100

Cost price of 100 shirts=$x

Sold out price of 100 shirts=$50

Profit of 100 shirts=SP-CP=$(50-x)

Profit of 1 shirt=$\(\frac{(50-x)}{100}\)=\(0.5 - \frac{x}{100}\)

Ans. (E)
