A video game manufacturer is planning to market a new machine. The fixed costs are $550,000 and the variable costs are $120 per machine. The wholesale price of the machine will be $140. How many game machines must be sold for the company to make a profit?

my answer was 27,500 it is wrong

  • algebra -

    140n = 550,000 + 120n

    20n = 550,000

    n = 27,500

    I don't know why it's wrong, unless the answer key is wrong (which happens every once in a while) or you have a typo above.
