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

Hi Chrissy,

Let x be the number of shirts produced. Let F(x) = 400 be the fixed cost of producing x shorts. Let V(x) = 5x be the variable cost (in $) of producing x shirts. Let T(x) be the total expense of producing x shirts.

T(x) = F(x) + V(x), so T(6) = F(6) + V(6) = 400 + 5 * 6 = 430 dollars.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
