**

Jerry bought some pens and pencils in the ratio of 2:5.

After he sold 270 pencils and `1/4` of the number of pens, the ratio of the number of pens to pencils became 3:8.

A pen can be sold at a price of $1.20

The selling price of a pencil is `7/12` of the selling price of a pen.

The total cost inccured by Jerry to buy all the pens and pencils was $388.

If Jerry managed to sell all the pens and pencils he had, how much money would he earn?

The correct answer is :

**1205**
