H is for hovercraft
H cost= 2 000 000 price= 3 000 000
10 H are made per month
So, you make 10 H in one month, how much will it cost you?
10 H × 2 000 000
and include insurance
+1 000 000
10 H × 2 000 000 + 1 000 000
= 21 000 000
Now, let's say you sold X=5 hovercrafts, how much did you earn?
5H × 3 000 000 = 15 000 000
So, you've spent 21 000 000 and earned 15 000 000, which means you are in minus, output is Loss.
I gave an example, the number of sold hovercrafts was X=5. But it could be any number. So, your X is the user input.
