Mrs. Claus thinks he has been eating too many cookies and should forget the whole deal.  But good ol' Santa says "Hey honeycakes, don't worry about it all I have to do is sell _________of these pictures and we make back all the investment.  Then he says in fact, if we sell _________ pictures we will have made \$24,000.
