If each bottle sells for .65 cents, express the cost, revenue and profit for running the factory for X days. After how many days will the factory break even?*

Cost function, C(x) = 3,000,000 + .05(10000X)

= 3,000,000 + 5000X

Revenue function, R(x) = .65(10000X)

= 6500X

Profit function, P(x) = 6500X - 3000000 + 5000X

= 11500X - 3000000

Break Even: 3000000 = 11500X

So in approximately 261 days the factory will break even.

Am I right?
