Transrail is bidding on a project that it figures will cost $400,000 to perform. 
Using a 25% markup, it will charge $500,000, netting a profit of $100,000. 
However, it has been learned that another company, Rail Freight, is also 
considering bidding on the project. If Rail Freight does submit a bid, it figures to 
be a bid about $470,000. Transrail really wants this project and is considering a 
bid with only a 15% markup to $460,000 to ensure winning regardless of whether 
or not Rail Freight submits a bid.
