Suzie’s Silk Scarves is a start-up that sells high quality scarves out of a boutique store. The monthly rent of the store is \$1,500 and Suzie has one manager who runs the store and earns \$3,000 per month. She leases out a computer and other equipment for her store at a total monthly cost of \$600, and spends another \$400 each month on advertising in local newspapers and publications. Suzie pays on average \$15 to import each scarf from Asia, and invests another \$3 per scarf on a fancy packaging box for each scarf. She sells each scarf for \$43. How many scarves must Suzie sell each month in order to break even?

1. Henry

To breaki even,
Income - Expense = 0.

X = The # of scarves sold.

43x-1500-3000-600-400-15x-3x = 0
25x - 5500 = 0
25x = 5500
X = 220 Scarves.
