Q:
# Quest Manufacturing is building a product that costs $200 to start to build and $6.40 per unit sold. The company plans to sell each unit for $10.50. The company wrote an inequality to determine the minimum number of units (u) that it needs to sell to break even or make a profit on the product. 10.50u ≥ 200 6.40u What is the minimum amount of units that the company needs to sell to break even or make a profit on the product?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:49 unitsStep-by-step explanation:10.50u ≥ 200 + 6.40u solve for u....4.10u ≥ 200 (subtract 6.40u to both sides) u ≥ 200/4.10 (divide both sides by 4.10) u ≥ 48.78 Any number of units greater than 48.78, but they can't sell parts of a unit, so 49 is the minimum number of units that need to be sold to make a profit
