    Ok, so the cost function is \[C(x) = 9.5x + 45\] With x being the number of units. If they make 12.5 per unit and they make x units, what will their revenue be?

    Then take the Revenue function and set it equal to the cost function and see what x is to break even.

    would this be the equation: 12.5x = 9.5x+45 then solve for x?
