    Total profit for units sold for consignor is 15240 $

    Explanation:

    Revenue generated from the sale is equal to 40 * 750 $ = 30000$. Since this is consignment sale, revenue belongs to consignor minus the commission and expenses of the consignee. Therefore: 30000-1500-500-680 = 27320$. As the cost of each set was 250 and 40 sets were sold, total amount is 10000 and the cost of shipping 40 sets was 2080, total profit is therefore 15240$. The cost of shipping 40 sets we can get if we divide total cost with the number of sets shipped. Then we get cost per unit and since 40 sets was sold the shipping cost of that sale was 2080$.
