revenue from n cans = 8n

cost for n cans is f + 2.4n

where f is the fixed cost.

after-tax income = 8n*.66 = 5.28n

earnings = income less expenses

2200000/8 = 275000 cans

150000 = 1452000 - f - 2.4(275000)

150000 = 792000 - f

f = 642000

So, earnings = 5.28n - f - 2.4n

= 2.88n - 642000

at breakeven, earnings = 0, so

0 = 2.88n - 642000

n = 222916.6, or 222917
