Answer:

#$44.25#, (I'm not sure what currency you're using)

Explanation:

The cost of the aquarium is #$295#.

You are looking for a #15%# profit, which means that you will sell the aquarium #115%# of its original cost because:

#115% ("Cost you're selling it for")-100%("Original cost")=15%("gain")#

So mathematically, you would multiply #1.15 times 295# to determine the price you sold the aquarium for, which results in #$339.25#

Now you can plug it into the equation above.

#339.25-295= 44.25#

The #15%# gain is the #$44.25#.

Hope this helps
