**Reiny**, Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 7:46pmnumber of small prints --- x

number of large prints --- 2x

20x + 45(2x) = 510

20x+90x=510

110x = 510

x= 510/110 = 4.6

but you can't sell .6 of a print, so I would say he should sell 5 small and 10 large prints

check:

5(20) + 10(45) = 550 -- a profit

if he sold only 4 small and 8 large

income = 4(20) = 8(45) = 440 , not enough to cover rent.

**choochoo**, Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 4:37amYou switched the large and small print numbers. Selling twice as many small prints would make it:

20 (2x) + 45 (x) = 510

If you solve with that formula in mind, x = 6...and that is the break-even number.
