1. Answer: break even point  (y) = 24000

Step-by-step explanation:

This is quite simple to solve,

We will take a step by step calculation.

let us begin;

Given that the Room rent per night is = \$90

Also the variable cost per night = \$40

Total fixed cost = \$1200,000

Now we are asked to solve for the Break even point;

Remember that at break even point, the Revenue = cost

Say the required revenue from renting y rooms R = \$90y

The cost of renting y rooms = C = \$ (40y + 1200,000)

therefore from this we have the Break even point as

\$90y = \$ (40y + 1200,000)

where y = 24000

cheers i hope this helps!!!!!!

24,000 units

Step-by-step explanation:

Breakeven point =  Fixed Costs / sales price by unit – variable cost by unit

BEP =  1,200,000 /  90 – 40

BEP =  1,200,000 / 50

BEP =  24,000 units

Then  we get BEP at 24,000 room during the whole year

If the chain consist of 68 motels,  then they need to have full occupancy during the whole year
