How do I calculate the units to break even? What type of formula do I use?

**Steve**, Monday, February 20, 2012 at 11:07amrevenue = units * price/unit

r = 2x for x units

var cost = .2r

fix cost = 6400

total cost c = 6400 + .2(2x)

total revenue = 2x

breakeven when cost = revenue

2x = 6400 + .4x

1.6x = 6400

x = 4000

so, at 4000 units,

revenue = 8000

cost = 6400 + .2(8000) = 8000
