Answer:

The Breakeven revenue for the retail business is Birr 12,500

What is breakeven?

Breakeven is the point at which the revenue is equals to the cost, hence the profit is zero.

Revenue = Cost

Let x represent the number of items sold, hence:

Revenue = (100% + 25%) of x = 1.25x

Cost = 5% of x + 12000 = 0.05x + 12000

At breakeven:

1.25x = 0.05x + 12000

x = 10000

Hence:

Revenue = 1.25(10000) = Birr 12,500

The Breakeven revenue for the retail business is Birr 12,500
