Question Description

I’m stuck on a Algebra question and need an explanation.

1.  Ron decides to start a t-shirt company.  It costs him $280 for equipment.  Expenses for each shirt are $3.99.  He sells each shirt for $10.99.  How many shirts must he sell to break even?

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

10.99x = 3.99x + 280

7x = 280

x = 40

40 shirts is the amount you need to sell to break even.
