Hey Mate! It doesnt seems good, dont use the curret numbers for calculate, You should use the variables to calculat, let me show You:

var wholesalePrice = 5.45;

var retailPrice = 9.99;

var quantity = 47;

var salesTotal = retailPrice * quantity;

var profit = (retailPrice - wholesalePrice) * quantity;

var profitPerUnit = profit / quantity;

At now, if You change the value of the wholesalePrice, retailPrice, or the quantity the calculat will works fine toward.

Thank you!
