After this brain teaser was shared, many people tried to solve it in the comments section.

An individual said, "45k. His initial investment is 80k. The first profit is 45k. When he goes to buy for the 2nd time, he puts in 15k extra and then sells for 15k in profit, which makes the second deal nil. So the actual profit is still 45k."

Another added, "\$60k. He put in \$80k out of pocket and added another \$15k to the initial for a total of \$95k. \$155k - \$95k = \$60k. If I'm wrong, I'm calling it a day, going home and taking a nap."
