Please help!!! Healthy foods sells 50 lb. bags of grapes to the military for $10. a bag. The fixed costs of this operation are $80,000, while the variables costs of the grapes are .10 per pound. What is the break even point in bags?
At .1 per pound, the variable cost per bag is $5. Let n be the number of bags at break-even. So Tota revenue is 10*n. Total costs are 80000+5*n.
Break-even is 10*n = 80000 + 5*n -- use algebra and solve for n.
