Jason Troy, the owner of Troy’s Toys, ordered a number of wind-up fish for the summer. He paid \$3.50 for each one and hoped to sell them at a higher price to make a profit. Unfortunately, the wind-up fish weren’t selling as well as expected and Jason had 48 toys left over at the end of the summer. To sell the wind-up fish, Jason had to lower the price for his customers.

On Monday, Jason reduced the price to \$5 and sold one-half of them.
On Tuesday, he marked down the remaining fish to \$4 and again sold one-half of them.
On Wednesday, he reduced the price to \$3 and sold one-third of the remaining fish.
Finally, he marked down the rest of the fish to \$2 and sold them all.

How much money (profit) did Jason make on the 48 wind-up fish?

(A) 26
(B) 27
(C) 28
(D) 30
(E) 32
