Easy Task, so what is wrong? It is telling me when I get to task 3 that task 1 is no longer passing.
It is telling me that task 1 is no longer passing but when I go back to task 1 and redo the steps it passes just fine, then gets stuck on task 3 again saying task 1 is no longer passing. What is wrong here?
var wholesalePrice = 5.45; var retailPrice = 9.99; var quantity = 47; var salesTotal = retailPrice * quantity; var profit = salesTotal - wholesalePrice * quantity; var profitPerUnit = Profit * quantity;

The reason that task 3 is not passing is because you have used the (*) operator instead of the (/) operator and the variable profit has been capitalized on the profitPerUnit line of code when it shouldn't be. Please see the below code I used to pass this challenge:
var wholesalePrice = 5.45; var retailPrice = 9.99; var quantity = 47; var salesTotal = retailPrice * quantity; var profit = salesTotal - (wholesalePrice * quantity); var profitPerUnit = profit / quantity;
Hope this helps! Happy Coding!!!
