#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

1. Net sales = Gross sales - Discounts - Returns

= 96300 - 1515- 1200

= 93585

2. Average price = 96300/ 44378 = 2.17

3. Average price of Doug's Doggie Delights = 205,000/ 63,000 = 3.25

4. Anne has sold lesser units than Doug in spite of the selling price being lower and also offering discount and a no questions asked returns policy. She can increase her selling price to match that of Doug, add more varieties to the menu and also can employ one additional resource to help her out.
