An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

The cost to produce x unit of lipstick is given as c(x) = 60x + 10000 and the revenue is r(x) = 85x

If the break even is at N

c(N) = r(N)

=> 60*N + 10000 = 85*N

=> 25N = 10000

=> N = 10000/25

=> N = 400

The revenue at break even is 85*400 = 34000

Break-even point = 400 lipsticks.

Revenue at break-even = 34000.
