The code you add should not contain any numbers. All calculations should be done using the variables already defined, plus the ones you define in the tasks.

Try taking the instructions more literally. For example, when they say "You can calculate this by dividing the profit by the quantity", I would expect to see "profit / quantity" in the code.

thank you mr. parker for your help
