A company sells two different types of math text books. The cost, C, of producing n copies of its Algebra book is C=12n + 3500, while the cost of producing n copies of its Chemistry book is C=10n + 4000. If the company wants to split costs evenly between the two books, how many copies of each book should it produce?

Word problem



So C(algebra) must be equal to C(chem) right? so the equation should be: 12n + 3500 = 10n + 400
