    The Selling price of each book is 15 so to come on break even point , multiply 15 X 800 =1200.. so they will reach on break even that is : no profit nor loss

    Let n = number of yearbooks to be printed. Expenses = 12000 + 5n Income = 15n To break even the income must equal the expenses. 12000 + 5n =15n 10n = 12000 n = 1200
