Hi All,

While this question is a bit 'wordy', there's a great built-in 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,
