    Suppose you invest $10,410 in equipment to manufacture a new board game. Each game costs $2.65 to manufacture and sells for $20. How many games must you make and sell before your business breaks even?

    10410 = 20p - 2.65p
    10410 = 17.25p
    17.25 17.25
    603.47826 = p?

    Hi amber,

    You did everything right except for subtracting 20p - 2.65p.

    20p - 2.65p = 10410

    17.35p = 10410

    p=600
