Q:
# Let C represent the cost in dollars and R represent the revenue in dollars. What is the break-even point? Use a table to help if necessary. C=36x+200 R=76xHelp? Plz!?

Accepted Solution

A:

the break even point is when C and R are equal....so set them equal

36x + 200 = 76x

200 = 76x - 36x

200 = 40x

200/40 = x

5 = x

C = 36(5) + 200 R = 76(5)

C = 180 + 200 R = 380

C = 380

so the break even point is 380

36x + 200 = 76x

200 = 76x - 36x

200 = 40x

200/40 = x

5 = x

C = 36(5) + 200 R = 76(5)

C = 180 + 200 R = 380

C = 380

so the break even point is 380
