A small publishing company is planning to publish a new book. The production costs will include onetime fixed costs (such as editing) and variable costs (such as printing). The onetime fixed costs will total $21,021. The variable costs will be $12.25 per book. The publisher will sell the finished product to bookstores at a price of $20.50 per book. How many books must the publisher produce and sell so that the production costs will equal the money from sales?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you print one book you pay the fixed cost plus 12.25 so \[12.25+21021\] if you print two books you have to pay two times 12.25 and the fixed cost so \[12.25\times 2+21021\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now for each book you sell, you make 20.50 so for n books you make \[20.50n\] dollars

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you want to know where they are equal so set \[12.25n+21021=20.50n\] and solve for \(n\)
