Step 1

Compute Break-even units and break-even revenue for faucet model and pitcher model.

Let faucet model is denoted by F and pitcher model is denoted by P.

Formula to calculate number of units for break-even of F and P:

Number of units = Break-even units x Units per bundle

Step 2

Substitute 3,000 units for break-even units and 2 units per bundle for F and 3 units per bundle for P,

Number of units for F = 3,000 units x 2 units per bundle

= 6, 000 units

Number of units for P = 3,000 units x 3 units per bundle

= 9,000 units

Formula to calculate break-even revenue of F and P:

Break-even revenue = Number of units x Selling price per unit
