    The lines in blue in your image pretty well explain what is happening in the pseudocode. Are you having trouble understanding the problem description?

    No I understand the description. But I don't understand the form of writing the code . Why in the first line he wrote units -500 and why in the second line he wrote units - 1000

    "every unit in excess of 1000" is (units - 1000)

    So the code is a direct translation of the description above.
