The student Council at Hampton high school is making T-Shirts to sell for a fundraiser, at a price of 18 APs. The costs, meanwhile, are three dollars per shirt, plus a set up fee of $75. Selling a certain number of shirts will allow the student council to cover their costs. How many shirts must be sold? What will be the cost?

They have to sell enough to cover the set up fee ($ 75) plus the cost of the shirts ( $ 3/ea)

 

Break even #    will b found   as  'x'

 

$ 18 x  = $ 75 + $ 3x       Solve for x the number of shirts that must be sold     75 + 3x is the cost in $
