    Profit = $ (700 - 42x - 56y)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    For large candles, the selling price is $10 and its making cost is $x.

    So, by selling a large candle the profit is $ (10 - x)

    Again for small candles, the selling price is $5 and its making cost is $y.

    So, by selling a small candle the profit is $ (5 - y)

    Therefore, in a sell of 42 large candles and 56 small candles the total profit will be, P = 42 (10 - x) + 56 (5 - y)

    ⇒ P = 420 - 42x + 280 - 56y {Applying distributive property}

    ⇒ P = $ (700 - 42x - 56y) (Answer)
