I pick "A"


You need to set up an equation.

450*12(x-110)=626400

where x is a selling cost of one item
x-110, is a profit from one item

450 - number of items produced and sold per month
12 - is a number of month in a year

Simplifying the equation will lead to x-110=116, then x = 226

simple but time consuming...

incurring profit 626400 is equal to incur profit 52200 per month.

total production cost = 450*110= 49500
Total selling price = 49500+52200=101700

Thus price per equipment= 101700/450 = 226

Answer:- A

Hey Sarang,
That's the trick of GMAT. For many questions, there is a long calculation approach and a short cut.
Selling price per item = 110 + \(\frac{626400}{(12*450)}\)
Considering that all options are integers, you know you will end up canceling everything out to obtain 110 + 116 = 226
