Step-by-step explanation:

We would apply the formula which is expressed as

N = (FC + OP)/[(R – VC)/TU]

Where

N represents the number of helicopters that must be sold.

FC represents the fixed cost

OP represents the operating income required.

R represents revenue

VC represents variable cost

TU represents the total number of units sold.

From the information given

FC = 350000

OP = 320000

R = 840000

VC = 260000

TU = 130

Therefore,

N = (350000 + 320000)/[(840000 – 260000)/130]

N = 670000/4461.54

N = 151 units rounded up to the nearest whole number
