David Austin recently purchased a chain of dry cleaners in northern Wisconsin. Although the business is making a modest profit now, David suspects that if he invests in a newpress, he could recognize a substantial increase in profits. The new press costs \$15,400 to purchase and install and can press 40 shirts an hour (or 320 per day). David estimates that with the new press, it will cost \$0.25 to launder and press each shirt. Customers are charged \$1.10 per shirt. a. How many shirts will David have to press to break even? b. So far, David’s workload has varied from 50 to 200 shirts a day.
