We let x be the number of cameras that need to be sold. The total cost for manufacturing x cameras is,                             9x + 1800 a. To equal its daily cost, the equation would be                      9x + 1800 = 18x The value of x from the equation is 200.  b. For 250 cameras sold,                       18(250) - ((9)(250) + 1800) = 450 Therefore, the answer is letter B.
