User: Michael Reeves, an ice cream vendor, pays $17.50 for a five-gallon container of premium ice cream. From this quantity he sells 80 scoops at $0.90 per scoop. If he sold smaller scoops, he could sell 98 scoops from the same container; however, he could charge only $0.80 per scoop. If Michael switches to the smaller scoops, by how much will his profit per container go up or down? (Profit = Sales – Expenses)

Weegy: Michael can have bigger profit in smaller scoops. He will have a difference of $6.4 in switching to smaller scoops. here's the computation: 80*$0.90=$72 98*$0.80=$78.40 $72-$17.50=$54.50 $78.40-$17.50=$60.90

If Michael switches to the smaller scoops, by how much will his profit per container go up or down? Using your answer from the questions above, by what percent will the profit change? (Round to the nearest tenth of a percent.)
