Answer:
The profit = $(3x  75) where x = number of tshirts sold
Stepbystep explanation:
School spirit club wants to raise money by selling tshirts. 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 tshirt for $8.
Let the number of tshirts that the club sell be equal to x.
So the cost of making x tshirts = 75 + 5x
If the club sells x tshirts , 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 tshirts to make a profit and from then on makes a profit of $3 on each tshirt they sell.
