$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#.
