1. thienhuong
The percentage profit is 140%

What is percentage?

Percentage can be described as the expression of a number in hundredth.

The formula for calculating percentage profit is

profit/cost price × 100

cost price=  $50 selling price=$15
number of mats produced= 8

selling price of the mat= 15 × 8
= 120

Profit= selling price-cost price

= 120-50
\$70

Therefore the percentage profit can be calculated as follows

= 70/50 × 100
= 1.4 ×100
= 140

Thus, the percentage profit is 140%
