    Minimum 15 bracelets to be sold to meet the break even.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The cost price of bracelets is represented by C (x) = 180+8x

    The revenue earned (selling price) is represented by R (x) = 20x

    In these two functions x represents number of bracelets.

    If P represents the profit then P = 20x - (180+8x)

    P = 20x-180-8x = (12x-180)

    For break even profit P = 0

    12x-180 = 0

    12x = 180

    x = 180:12

    x = 15

    So minimum quantity of bracelets to be sold is 15 for the break even.
