Jim purchased a set of clubs for $500 less 40%, 16% and two thirds%. Expenses are 20% of regular selling price and the required profit is 17.5% of the regular selling price. The store decided to change the regular selling price so that it could offer a 36% discount without affecting its margin. At the end of season, the unsold sets were advertised at a discount of 54% of the regular new selling price. What operating profit or loss was realized on the sets sold at the end of the season?

..... and this post makes no more sense than the 1st one.

Elena, your first sentence doesn't make sense:

This bit is okay - //// Jim purchased a set of clubs for $500 less 40%, ////

Then the bit after makes no sense whatsoever - //// 16% and two thirds%. ////
Don't waste any more time on it- go back and check teh uestion.
Or work it out ignoring the 16% and two thirds bit, and then you maybe able to tweak your answer quickly once you find out the corrected version of the question.
