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

Let the Sales amount be x

The variable costs would be 0.6 x

Fixed costs are given as $173,600

Net Income would be x-0.6x-173,600 which is given to be 95,400

Hence the equation to be solved is 

0.4x - 173,600 = 95,400

0.4x = 173,600 +95,400

0.4 x = 269,000

x= $ 672,500

Required Sales amount = $ 672,500
