Total cost = \(600 + 90 = 54000\) total revenue per month = cost + profit = \(54000+42000 = 96000\) Selling price per unit = \(\frac{96000}{600}= 160\) D is correct answer.

Bunuel and abhimahnaI solved it this way. Is it fine? Total manufacturing cost= 600*90= 54000 Total selling cost= 600x Profit= 600x 54000 600x 54000>= 42000 x>=160 The least value is 160 because of the equal to sign.

Hi Shiv2016 , Yes, this method is fine. It's actually the same the other person has used in the above post. You are taking >= while he was taking "=". You are all good if you are getting the right answer. :)

Total profit=42000=No of units sold=600 and the price be x 600X=42000 x=42000/600=420/6=70. SP=90+70=160

my approach since we already know cost per unit that is 90$/unit and we also successfully sells all unit every month and we need total 42000$ profit so simply divide 42000/600=420/6=70 now 90+70=160 will be selling price Option D

A$110 B$120 C$140 D$160 E$180 We can let p = the minimum selling price per unit and create the following equation: 600p  600(90) ≥ 42,000 600p  54,000 ≥ 42,000 600p ≥ 96,000 p ≥ 160 Answer: D

Total Cost price= 90*600 C.P = 54000 Total Selling Price= 600*x
Where x= no. of units
Profit= Selling price  Cost Price 42000= 600x 54000 600x= 96000 x=160
Ans. D

Hi All, While this question is a bit 'wordy', there's a great builtin logic 'shortcut' that you can use to minimize the amount of work that you need to do to get to the correct answer. To start, we're given a couple of facts to work with: 1) There are 600 units produced and sold 2) Each unit COST $90 to make We're asked for the price at which the TOTAL PROFIT from the sale of these units = $42,000. Since there are 600 units, then each unit has to bring in $42,000/600 = $70 in profit. The COST of each unit is $90, so to hit that total profit, we just need to increase that $90 by $70 on each unit. $90 + $70 = $160 Final Answer: GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made, Rich
