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?

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.
