If x units of a product cost C dollars to manufacture and earn revenue of R dollars, the value of x where the expressions for C and R are equal is called the break-even quantity, the number of units that produce zero profit. Find the break-even quantity when C =13x +. 64000 and R =17x

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

C =13x +. 64000 and R =17x

break even C=R

13x +. 64000=17x

64,000= 17x-13x

64,000= 4x

x=16,000
