3. John bought a laptop for $x$ dollars and sold it at a 4 percent profit. Which of the following gives the amount of his profit?

1. $\ 1.04x$
2. $0.96x$
3. $0.04x$
4. $0.4x$
5. $0.6x$

Convert the percentage of profit, 4% into a decimal

$4\%=\frac{4}{100}=0,04$

To get the amount of profit we need to multiply this decimal number with $x$ value in dollars, i.e.

$0,04x \;USD$
