Let the number of kits that were originally bought = x
Hence, total cost price = $16x
Given that he sold all but 6 of them for $22 each and made a total profit of $168.
Hence,
$ 22 × ( x 6 ) $ 16 x = $ 168 $ 22 x $ 132 $ 16 x = $ 168 $ 6 x = $ 300 x = 50
Hence, the number of kits that were originally bought = 50
