During the summer, a group of students builds kayaks in a converted garage. The rental for the garage is \$600 for the summer, and the materials needed to build a kayak cost \$25. The kayaks can be sold for \$175 apiece. How many kayaks must the students sell to break even? How many kayaks must the student sell to make a profit of \$ 450?

Let BEQ= Break even quantity
BEQ = FC/ (Selling price per -Variable Cost per Unit)
BEQ = 600/ (175-25)
BEQ= 600/150
BEQ = 4

The students must sell 4 kayaks to break even and sell 7 kayaks to make a profit of \$450.
