Can you explain where the 425 and 6460 came from please? Is it in the book?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, its in a book.the 425 is the cost (times by 10, origanly 4.25) per competitor, 6460 is the cost (originally 64.60) of extra expensive. And I need the break even for when the FEA charges the competitor $10 to enter . @rheaanderson341

Okay.. I'm a little confused but we'll try and solve this together. okay, so you multiplied the $4.25 and the $64.60 with the 10. How come?

Does p represent competitors?

My teacher has us do that because in our class gets confused when working with decimals, yes p is competitors.

Okay, so I couldn't get myself to understand the multiplying part so I did it with the decimals kept in place. Sorry for awful tablet writing, lol! To explain though... To "breakeven" basically means equal in economics/finance/etc.. So you simply get x on one side and the other number on the other side. Then you solve to get x = ???. There can't be 11.43 people, so it's either 11 or 12. Does this make any sense?
