Their profit?

Postby JMISBEST » Thu Aug 02, 2018 11:45 am

I'm working on a 1-off trading mission for a friend and in order to know what, if everything goes to plan, is the friends groups guaranteed lowest possible profit after all costs?. For this I, and he, need to know what 141x1,490 minus 106x1,490 is. Can you help?

Can you please be more exact. Sorry but Maths was the only intellectual Subject at School that I was never good at, mainly cos The Teacher at my age 11 to 18 school was abusive, rude, obnoxious, sat on you for the slightest reason, was hated by the staff, the teachers and the admin and likely only kept his job cos half the governors where either family, family by marriage or friends of 1 of those 2 and he had several very elderly relatives that where ex senior cops or where married to Ex Senior Cops and who all still had a lot of friends who, at the time, still where senior cops, and as he only did nasty things as a last resort and tried to be fair we put up with him cos it would get very bad very quickly for the school, not just my class and even for those not punished, if he got his powerful family, friends and friends of his family involved in brushing it under the carpet

Doing multiplication is a basic life skill, you must learn it! In a pitch, you can just type in your calculation into google, it will give you the answer. Your mobile phone has a calculator app installed, too, and if you post your stuff from a computer, you are literally sitting in front of a machine built to do math. Learn how to use it!

But if you want to hang out with the cool Traveller crowd, buy a slide rule. There are youtube videos that can teach you how it works.

I think getting us to do a maths problem that can be solved by a simple calculator is a little odd. I have it at 52,1500 and it took 2 minutes!

Use a calculator :)

Or just pick an amount of profit they can make (a few thousand creds perhaps), or you can just give them a billion credits and a fleet of trading ships
