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?

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
