# Breakeven units

Please explain how to solve.

Problem 2: Break Evan analysis

The Aloha Christmas tree company buys fresh christmas trees from the Northwest

United States at the start of the Christmas season for $25 a piece and sells them

in Honolulu for $65 a piece. He rents three refrigerated containers from Matson

Navigation Company to transport the trees from Seatle to Honolulu for $1000 a container

TC = 3000 + 25Q Brk.Even: solve for Q where TR = TC

TR = 65Q $5000 Profit Solve for Q: TR - TC = 5000

Questions

1. Write the total revenue and total cost function and find the number of Christmas

trees

2. From the above, find the number of trees that must be sold to achieve break even

in the operation.

3. If the proprietor wants to achieve a profit of $5000, how many trees must he sell.
