Received order for 76 bells weighing 500 pounds each. He charges $0.42 per pound. How much is he owed?
Received payment for one fourth of the bells. How much did he collect? How much remains to be paid?
Sold 12 teapots for $1.23 each. How much did he collect? If each teapot cost $0.76 to make, how much profit did he make?
Rang bells for Christ Church three times during the day and was paid $1.45 for each time. How much money did he earn?
