Profit= SP- OP
OP=1/3 or revenue gained
revenue= price of good * no of good , in short = SP
Let SP=x
15600=x-x/3
solve for x, SP total revenue = \$23400
and OP= 23400/3= \$7800
revenue \$ 23400, IMO D

Revenue= Cost + Profit (R=C+P)
R=C+15600
Cost = 1/3 (R)

R= 1/3(R) + 15600
R-1/3(R)= 15600
2/3(R)= 15600
R= 23400

This is the thought process that I used to solve this problem.
