$12,000 + $0.50X where X = servings of chili 

The following monthly volumes: 100; 1,000; 5,000; and 10,000.

total monthly cost=$12000+$0.50x

total volumes=16100

16100/$12,000+x=$0.70

    cross multiply

0.7(12,000+x)=16,100

8,400+0.7x=16,100

0.7x=16,100-8,400  

0.7x=7,700

7x=77,000

x=11,000    , volume at which  average cost per serving is $ 0.7
