Her expenses are \$400 to rent the booth and \$5 for the blank T-shirts. After printing the design she will then sell them for \$17 each. How many T-shirts must she sell to break even? ---- Expenses: E(x) = 400+5t where "t" is # of blank-T-shirts. ---- Revenue: R(x) = 17t ------- Break Even mean Expense = Revenue --- 400 + 5t = 17t 400 = 12t t = 33 1/3 (# of blank T-shirts she should sell to break even) ================= Cheers, Stan H.
