A marketer bought N crates of empty cardboard gift boxes. Each crate held Q individual gift boxes, and the lot of N crates was purchases at a wholesale price of W dollars. This marketer will sell collections of J cardboard gift boxes to retailers, at a price of P dollars for each collection. (Note: J is a divisor of Q.) The marketer knows that, when he has sold all the cardboard gift boxes this way, he wants to net a total profit of Z dollars on the entire transaction. What price P must he charge, to net this profit? Express P in terms of N, Q, W, J, and Z.
(A) J(Z-W)/NQ
(B) J(Z+W)/NQ
(C) Q(Z-W)/NJ
