Mysti Farris (see Problem 1-20) believes that there is a high probability that 120 pool cues can be sold if the selling price is appropriately set. What selling price would cause the break-even point to be 120?
In Problem 1-20, Farris Billiard Supply sells all types of billiard equipment, and is considering manufacturing their own brand of pool cues. Mysti Farris, the production manager, is currently investigating the production of a standard house pool cue that should be very popular. Upon analyzing the costs, Mysti determines that the materials and labor cost for each cue is $ 25, and the fixed cost that must be covered is $ 2,400 per week. With a selling price of $ 40 each, how many pool cues must be sold to break even?
