suppose you right a book. the printer charges $4 per book to print it, and you spend #3500 on advertising. you sell the book for $15 a copy. how many copies must you sell so that your income from sales is greater than your total cost?

  • algebra -

    costs= fixed cost + variable cost
    income=15*books

    if income is > than costs
    15*B>3500+4B
    11B>3500

    B>327, so B must be 328 so that income is greater than costs.
