Break-even point   is where  R(h) = C(h)

 

So

 

10 + 30h  = 5h^2 - 25        subtract 10, 30h from both sides

 

0 = 5h^2 - 30h - 35           divide both sides by   5

 

h^2 - 6h - 7   = 0         factor

 

(h - 7) ( h + 1) = 0

 

Set each factor to  0   and solve for h and we get that    h = 7  or h = -1

 

Only the first answer makes sense.....so h =  7   (hours)

 

cool cool cool
