Students write and solve equations to calculate the profit they earn from a business selling prom wear.

* Writing and evaluating 2-step equations

* Percent of a Number
* Long Division
* Students create a profit & loss statement to find out how much money they earned
* All keys included
As a former business owner (I sold mine 15 years ago), it is my job to show these students that math is not a bunch of useless numbers. Math is business; business is math, and Math Means Business.
