A small publishing company is planning to publish a new book. The production costs will include one-time fixed costs (editing) and variable costs (printing). One time fixed cost will total $76,322. The variable costs will be $10 per book. The publisher will sell the finished product to the book store at a price of $25.50 per book. How many books must the publisher produce and sell that the production costs will equal the money from sales?



the answer is 4924 books..how would i go about solving this problem im suck. Thanks for the help in advance!

  • Math - ,

    Let B = the "break even" number of books.
    Production costs=$76,322 + B * $10
    Total Sales = B * $25.50
    Setting these equal...
    Total sales = Production costs
    or...
    $76,322 + B * $10 = B * $25.50
    Solve for B
