# 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)

The question asks for store’s profit per shirt

We have Cost Price of 100 shirts = x, so Cost Price of 1 shirt = x/100

Now, Sell Price of 100 shirts = $50, so Sell Price of 1 shirt = 50/100

Profit (in dollars)= S.P. - C.P. = 50/100 - x/100 => 0.5 - x/100.

Answer is option E.[b][/b]
