  • Answer:

    The profit = $(3x - 75) where x = number of t-shirts sold

    Step-by-step explanation:

    School spirit club wants to raise money by selling t-shirts. one local company charges a fixed fee of $75 for creating the design and $5 for each shirt that they print.

    We have to find the club's income if they sell each t-shirt for $8.

    Let the number of t-shirts that the club sell be equal to x.

    So the cost of making x t-shirts = 75 + 5x

    If the club sells x t-shirts , then the money they earn = 8x

    Profit = selling price - cost price

              = 8x - (75 + 5x)

              = $(3x - 75)

    The club also needs to sell at least 25 t-shirts to make a profit and from then on makes a profit of $3 on each t-shirt they sell.
