Jose started a small business and wants to determine when the business will become profitable. His operating costs can be expressed as y=$10,000+$3,000x, where x is the number of months he stays in business. His sales revenues can be expressed as y=$4,500x, where x is the number of months he stays in business.

  1. profitable means revenue exceeds costs
    4500x > 10000+3000x
    so solve for x, and that is how long it will take
