1000 less 35% == 650

so 250 given to charity

total cost making the pins was 1000x 1.10 = 1100

so you need to find 60 percent of 650 =390

and 40 percent of 650 = 260

so then you need to find the cost 390 x 3 pounds each so × this and gives you 1170 cost sold for intotal

Then you have 260 ÷2 = 130 x 5 = 650

so you have 650+1170 = 1820 – 1100 cost to make =720 pounds

think this right
