The business owner sells $200$ pizza slices per day at $\$1.50$ each. He also sells $85$ sandwiches per day at $\$2.50$ each. The owner's expenses are $\$60$ in a day. The owner's profit in a day is: $200*1.5+85*2.5-60=300+212.5-60=452.5$ (dollars) This makes the profit for a 10-day period: $452.5*10=4525$ (dollars)
