Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:300 copies of the newsletter must be sold to break even.Step-by-step explanation:Let there are k newspapers sold to break even.Cost price of each paper = $1.50So, the cost price of k newspapers = k times $1.50 = 1.50 kPrinters fee = $450Now, total cost of printing k papers = Printing Fee + Cost price of k papers= $450 + $ 1.50k = 450 + 1.50kSelling price of each paper = $3SO, the cost price of k newspapers = k times $3 = 3 kNow, to break even TOTAL COST = TOTAL SELLING PRICEor, 450 + 1.50k = 3kor, 450 = 3k - 1.50k⇒ 1.5 k = 450or, k = 450 /1.5 = 300⇒ k = 300Hence, 300 copies of the newsletter must be sold to break even.
