I think E. I might be mistaken.

Each machine part is sold at 10 - 0.1x

Each machine part is sold for \$4.00

10 - 0.1x = 4
6 = .1x
x = 60

The company can sell 100x machine parts.

(100)(60) = 6,000

Company charges 10 – 0.1x = 4 dollars for each machine part
0.1x=6
x=60
Machine parts company can sell = 100x=100*60=6000

Since each machine part is sold for 4 dollars, or (10 - 0.1x) dollars, we can equate the two amounts:

10 - 0.1x = 4

6 = 0.1x

60 = x

Thus, the company can sell 100(60) = 6,000 machine parts.
