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

at break even point,

cost = revenue

560+12x = 20.7x

560 = 20.7x - 12x

560 = 8.7 x

x= 560/8.7

x = 64.367.................................answer

64.367 items are needed to produce for the company to break even.

you can round this answer to 64 items

hope you understood..please message if you have any doubts...thank you
