Goods Sold \$7125000, Operating Expense \$5725000. I am supposed to

Investment. With the information given, you could determine your net
profit. (Sales less Cost of Goods Sold less Operating Expense) This
equals \$3,150,000. You would then divide this net profit by the
amount of initial investment. If the initial investment was
\$10,000,000, then the ROI would be 31%.

Math Problem: I have 3 kids, 5, 9, and 12 years old. They each have
homework. How do I help them without giving them the answer. I give
them clues and let them figure out what is wrong with their solution
and then come up with another. They seem to understand better how to
solve future problems when I use this approach. When I tell them what
the answer is, they rely on me to do their work.
