It costs a publishing company $50,000 to make books. the $50,000 is a fixed cost or a cost that cannot change. to the publishing company sell the books, a marketing company charges 4 dollars for each book sold. if the company charges 9 dollars per book, how many books should they sell to break even?

10,000 books

Explanation:

Knowns:

Fixed Costs: $50,000

Variable Costs: $4 (price marketing company charges per book sold)

Sale price: $9 per book

We can solve break even (BE) by using the following formula:

BE = (Fixed Cost) / (Sale price-Variable costs)

BE = ($50,000) / (($9-$4)

BE = $50,000 / $5

BE = 10,000 units

I hope this helps!
