## Texas Go Math Grade 4 Lesson 18.2 Answer Key Find Profit

**Essential Question**

How can you determine if you make a profit?

Answer: The amount gained by selling a product with more than its cost price. Before you can dive into determining profit margin, you need to know what it is. Your business’s profit margin measures what percentage of revenue your business keeps after paying for outgoing expenses. You can calculate profit margin to see profitability for a specific time period.

To determine your company’s overall profit margin, you’ll want to use the net profit margin formula. Use the formula below to calculate your business’s overall profit margin:

Profit Margin = (Net Income / Revenue) X 100

- Determine your business’s net income (Revenue – Expenses)
- Divide your net income by your revenue (also called net sales)
- Multiply your total by 100 to get your profit margin percentage.

**Unlock the Problem**

Jasmine makes cow sock puppets to earn money to donate to the Future Farmers Club. She buys all of the items shown in the table. Each sock makes one puppet. She will sell the cow puppets for $8 each. Will Jasmine make a profit if she sells all of her puppets?

Profit is the amount of money left after all the expenses are subtracted from the amount of money received from selling an item or service.

Answer:

The cost of cow puppets each=$8

Puppet supplies are already given on the table.

There are 3 pieces of felt fabric $6 each=6*3=$18.

Now add all the supplies=18+12+3.69+4.99+9.99+5.33=$54.

If she sells all the cow puppets for $8 each=12*8=$96. {already she has 12 puppets which have to sell for $8 each that’s why I multiplied 8 with 12}.

To know the profit how much she gains, you need to subtract expenses from income. By math sentence, we can write as 96-54=$42.

She gained a $42 profit.

**Example**

(A) Find the total expenses.

Think: Find the cost of the 3 pieces of felt.

Felt: _________ pieces × $ ___________ = $ ___________.

Add the cost of all the puppet supplies she bought.

_________________________ = ____________

Jasmine spent a total of $ _________ on her supplies.

Answer:

Felt fabric=3 pieces×$6=$18

Now add all the supplies=18+12+3.69+4.99+9.99+5.33=$54.

Jasmine spent a total of $54 on her supplies.

(B) Amount received from selling puppets.

Jasmine has __________ socks, so she can make __________ puppets.

She sells the puppets for $8 each.

Think: to find the amount of money she receives, you must multiply.

__________ puppets × $ __________ per puppet = $ __________ .

Jasmine receives __________ from selling all the puppets.

Answer:

Jasmine has 12 socks. so she can make 12 puppets. She sells each puppet for $8. Now we have to find the amount of money she receives, so you multiply 12 puppets × $8 per puppet=$96.

Jasmine receives $96 from selling all the puppets.

(C) Find the Profit.

Subtract the total expenses from the amount received.

$ ____96_____ – $ ____54_____ = $ ___42______

So, Jasmine makes a ___42______ of $ ____96_____ .

Answer:

To know the profit how much she gains, you need to subtract expenses from income. By math sentence, we can write as 96-54=$42.

She gained a $42 profit.

Mathematical Processes

What is the least number of puppets Jasmine has to sell and still make a profit? Explain.

Answer: If she sells 8 puppets for $8 each then 8*8=64$

To know the income we need to subtract income – expenses.

Total expenses=$54

Therefore, 64-54=$10

If she sells 8 puppets then she will gain $10 profit.

Question 9.

**Multi-Step** Ava starts a business making oil paintings of people’s pets. She buys the items shown on the table. She has her paints and other supplies. She charges $75 for an unframed painting. If she sells 20 paintings, how much profit will she make?

Answer:

The supplies she buys the items are canvas and a master brush set.

The cost of canvas=$44.89

The cost of a brush set=$231.21

Now add all the expenses.

Expenses=$44.89+$231.21=$276.1

The amount she charged for an unframed painting=$75

The profit she makes, when she sells 20 paintings=20*$75=$1500

Earnings:$1500

Profit=earnings-expenses

profit=$1500-$276.1

profit=$1223.9

Question 10.

**H.O.T.** What is the least number of paintings Ava needs to sell in order to make a profit? Explain how you found your answer.

Answer: 4 paintings.

Explanation:

I checked with the least numbers which mean in the place of 20, I placed 2, 3 I got no profit and after I placed 4 I got minimum profit. So 4 is the least number of paintings.

Ava needs to sell at least 4 paintings to get a profit. Each painting is $75. So I multiplied 75 with 4. By math sentence, I can write as 4*$75=300. I got earnings. I already knew the expenses that are $276.1(check in the above answer).

Profit=earnings-expenses

Profit=300-276.1

Profit=$23.9

Question 11.

**Apply** Ava buys another 20 canvasses. She needs paint, now, so she buys 3 tubes at $11 each. She does not need brushes. What is her profit if she sells 5 paintings?

Answer: $297.11

Explanation:

The number of canvasses Ava buys=20

The cost of canvass=$44.89 (Given in the 9th question)

The number of tubes she buys=3

The cost of each tube=$11

The total amount she invested on tubes=11*3=$33

The amount she spends on expense=33+44.89=$77.89

Already in the above question given that the cost of painting she sells that is $75. Once check-in the 9th question.

Now if she sells 5 paintings then she could get 5*$75=$375.

We know expenses and earnings. So, we have to calculate profit.

Profit=earnings-expenses

Profit=375-77.89

Profit=$297.11

Her profit, if she sells 5 paintings is $297.11

**H.O.T. Reasoning** David and Diane decide to decorate tote bags and sell them. The profit will go to the community garden project. They buy 8 tote bags for $5.93 each and 8 fabric paints for $4.02 each. Estimate the amount they should charge for each tote bag so they make a profit of about $40. Explain.

Answer: $2.99 for each bag.

Explanation:

The number of tote bags they buy=8

The cost of each bag=$5.93

The total amount they spend on tote bags=8*$5.93=$47.44

The number of fabric paints they buy=8

The cost of each fabric paint=$4.02

The total amount they spend on fabric paints=8*$4.02=$32.16

The total amount they invested on expenses=47.44+32.16=$79.6

Already profit is given that is $40

Now we need to find out the amount they should charge for each tote bag so they make a profit of about $40.

Profit=earnings-expenses.

$40= earnings-$79.6

send expenses on the left side

$40+$79.6=earnings

$119.6=earnings.

The amount they should charge for each bag to make a profit $40 =119.6/40=$2.99.

Question 4.

Sam and Carla are going to make and sell potholders to earn money for the animal shelter. They need 2 looms, so they will buy 2 loom kits. If they also buy 2 bags of loops and sell the 22 potholders for $4.00 each, how much profit will they make? Explain.

Answer: $12.22

Explanation:

The number of loom kits they buy=2

The cost of each loom=$17.94

The total amount they invested on loom kits=2*$17.94=$35.88

The cost of each bag of loops=$19.95

The number of bags they buy=2

The total amount they invested on a bag of loops=2*$19.95=$39.9

The total amount they invested on expenses was $35.88+$39.9=$75.78

If they sell 22 potholders for $4 each, then the profit is 22*$4=$88.

Now calculate the profit.

Profit=earnings-expenses

Profit=$88-$75.78

Profit=$12.22

Question 5.

Sam and Carla decide to buy 2 looms and 10 bags of loops. What is their profit if they sell all 86 potholders for $4.50 each?

Answer:

Explanation:

The number of loom kits they buy=2

The cost of each loom=$17.94

The total amount they invested on loom kits=2*$17.94=$35.88

The cost of each bag of loops=$19.95

The number of bags they buy=10

The total amount they invested on a bag of loops=10*$19.95=$199.5

The total amount they invested on expenses was $35.88+$199.5=$235.38

If they sell 86 potholders for $4.50 each, then the profit is 86*$4.5.0=$387

Now calculate the profit.

Profit=earnings-expenses

Profit=$387-$235.38

Profit=$151.62

Question 6.

If Sam and Carla buy just the 2 loom kits and sell only the 6 potholders, how much do they need to charge for each potholder to make a profit? Explain.

Answer:

The number of loom kits they buy=2

The cost of each loom=$17.94

The total amount they invested on loom kits=2*$17.94=$35.88

We can charge from $7 above. I will explain now how it comes. First, look at the expenses they invested and both decided to sell 6 potholders so, once thought if we charge $5 each then there is no profit, there will be a loss. By math sentence, I can write as 6*$5=$30.

Profit=$30-$35.88=-5.88 ( They got in minus, there is a loss if they sell $5 each).

For example, charge $8 each then the earnings will be 6*$8=$48.

Now calculate profit=earnings-expenses

Profit=$48-$35.88

Profit=$12.12

We need to check and calculate the profit and then we have to sell the product.
