Accepted Solution

A:

The club is making posters to raise money. The printer charges a base fee of $270 and $2 per poster for supplies. Suppose the club gets x number of posters printed.The cost of printing x posters with 270 fixed charges shall beCost = 2x + 270Now each poster sells for $5So selling price of x posters = $5xNow selling price - cost price = profit5x - (2x+270) = 3005x - 2x - 270 = 3003x -270 = 300Adding 270 on both sides3x = 300 + 2703x = 570Dividing by 3 on both sidesx = 190The club must see 190 posters to make a profit of $300.
