**Steve**, Friday, October 21, 2011 at 12:04pmIf the demand is met, the total revenue is price per unit * number of units

for machine (a)

revenue = p(x)*x = 42.5x - 4x^2

cost = f(x)*x = 4.1x^2 + 92.16

breakeven is where cost = revenue

42.5x - 4x^2 = 4.1x + 92.16

4x^2 -38.4x + 92.16 = 0

x^2 - 9.6x + 23.04 = 0

x = 4.8

So, for unit (a) the breakeven occurs at 4800 units

Go forth and do likewise for (b) and (c)
