Assume that you have   bought   X    jackets for   $500.  So cost price of each jacket is (500/X ).

Selling price of each jackets is  $25. 

a)  Profit =  25*X- (500)  (selling price * no of jackets - total cost)
b)  Profit for 50 jackets = 25*50- (500) = 750

C) total cost price = $500. And selling of each jacket is price is $25.  Hence to get back our investment, we need 500/25  jackets ; X=500/25 = 20 jackets .
