Step-by-step explanation:

Let x represent the number of attendees that it will take the company to break even.

The company pays a flat fee of \$98 to rent a facility in which to hold each session. Additionally, for every attendee who registers, the company must spend \$16 to purchase books and supplies. This means that the total cost that the company would pay for x attendees is

16x + 98

Each attendee will pay \$65 for the seminar. This means that the total revenue that the company would generate from x attendees is 65x.

At the break even point,

total cost = total revenue

Therefore,

16x + 90 = 65x

65x – 16x = 98

49x = 98

x = 98/49

x = 2

It will take 2 attendees and the total expenses and revenues is

2 × 65 = \$130
