A courier delivery service delivers packages which cost $1.70 per package to deliver. The fixed cost to run the delivery van is$15.00 per day. If the company charges \$2.70 per package, how many packages must be delivered daily to break even? Your answer should be a number only.

Our profit per package delivered is $$2.70 - 1.70 = 1$$. Since we need to make $$15$$, we can do $$\frac{15}{1} = 15$$. So we would need $$15$$ packages to be delivered.
