Profit = Revenue - Charge


P(1995) = 40.1000 - 30.1000 = 10.000
P(1996) = 50.800 - 30.800 = 20.800 = 16.000

Ans is 6000$

The keyword here is "Gross Profit":

Gross Profit = (Selling Price - Original Price)*(# of Items Sold)

So lets figure out what the Gross Profit for 1995:

GP1995 = (40-30)*(1000) = 10000

And the Gross Profit for 1996:

GP1996 = (50-30)*(800) = 16000

So the difference would be:

16000-10000 = 6000

ANSWER: B. 6000

profit '95 = 1000*40 - 1000*30= 10,000
profit '96 = 800 * 50 - 800 *30 = 16,000
Thus difference = 6000.B
