Hi,

breakeven (sales) = Sales it takes to make Profit = 0 (all cost included)

therefore

(Unit Price - Unit Variable cost) X (Breakeven Quantity) = Other (fixed) costs

Therefore

Breakeven quantity = Other fixed costs / (Unit price - unit variable cost)

hope it helps.

Tom Ford is well-known for male fashion; therefore, the number should be low.
