Yoffar made 430 credits selling all 156 of his latest shipment of the rare meiloorun fruit today at the Lothal market. His…best customers (Imperial Troops) get a special military discount of 2 credits per meiloorun and civilians pay 4 credits. Despite his price structure, Yoffar was making a decent profit until one of the Imperial officers came back an hour before closing to replace his purchase of 22 fruit after it was stolen by a band of rebel scum and “negotiated” a new price: free.

How many meilooruns did Yoffar sell to civilians? How did he sell to Imperial troops?

Bonus: If Yoffar’s cost is 3 credits per meiloorun, what percent profit did he make?
