a) $C=200x+60000$ b) $R=450x$ c) $240$ desks, $R(240)=\$108000$

Work Step by Step

a) Here, the cost is the fixed cost. This means $\$ 60000$ plus $\$ 200$ per desk. Hence, $C=200x+60000$ b) Revenue $=\$450$ per Desk Hence, $R=450x$ c) The break -even point occurs when profit is equal to zero, that is, $R=C$ Thus, $P=200x+60000$ $0=200x+60000$ Hence, $x= 240$ desks At this point, revenue is: $R(240)=450*240=\$108000$
