Megan used to work at the local pizzeria for $15,000 per year but quit in order to start her own deli. To buy the necessary equipment, she withdrew $20,000 from her inheritance, (which paid 8 percent interest). Last year she paid $25,000 for ingredients and $500 per month rent but had revenue of $50,000. She asked her dad the accountant and her mom the economist to calculate her profit for her.
Dad says her profit is $9,000 and Mom says her profit is $2,400.
