###### Question:

## Answers

$16,000,000

Explanation:

Weighted average margin = (Sales mix of goods * Contribution margin) + (Sales mix of gear * Contribution margin)

Weighted average margin = (65%*30%) + (35%*50%)

Weighted average margin = 19.50% + 17.50%

Weighted average margin = 37%

Break-even point = Fixed costs / Weighted average contribution margin ratio

Break-even point = $5,920,000 / 37%

Break-even point = $5,920,000 / 0.37

Break-even point = $16,000,000

So, the break-even point in dollars is $16,000,000.

a recipe serves 8 people, and calls for 5 lbs of apples and 2 cups of flour. you want to prepare it for 24 people. divide 24 by 8 to get 3, and then multiply your ingredients by 3.

so for 24 people, you'll need 15 lbs of apples, and 6 cups of flour.

30,000 would be the answer
