Let's deal with one problem at a time.

In question 1, if variable costs are \$1.50 per wash and price per wash is \$5.50, what is net cash received per wash?

So how many washes does it take to equal the purchase price of \$150,000. #### Search tags for this page ### a publisher has a fixed cost of$250000 associated with the production of a college mathmatics book
