Can someone help me please?

Can some help me with the problem below.


Design the logic that will use assignment statements to: Calculate the profit (profit) as the retail price minus the wholesale price Calculate the sale price (salePrice) as 25 percent deducted from the retail price Calculate the profit when the sale price is used (saleProfit) as the sale price minus the wholesale price

itemName = "TV Stand"
retailPrice = 325.00
wholesalePrice = 200.00


# Write your assignment statements here for profit, salePrice, and saleProfit

print("Item Name: " + itemName)
print("Retail Price: $" + str(retailPrice))
print("Wholesale Price: $" + str(wholesalePrice))
print("Profit: $" + str(profit))
print("Sale Price: $" + str(salePrice))
print("Sale Profit: $" + str(saleProfit))

This code seems to be only "print" statements and is missing the calculations and variable assignments. In particular:

  • profit, salePrice, and saleProfit have not been defined
  • an expression (like "profit-wholesale") doesn't do anything by itself (assign it to a variable)
