    A daycare charges ​$37 per day per child. Fixed expenses include $ 112 per day for wages and $ 288 per day for space rental and insurance. The daycare can take in up to 20 children each day and is expected to be full.

    ​(a) To break​ even, what is the most that can be spent on supplies per child per​ day?

      ----   37 x 20 - 112 - 288 = 340

     . . .  340 / 20  =  $17per day per child

    ​(b) To achieve a profit of $ 180 per​ day, what is the amount that can be spent on supplies per child per​ day?

     --- 340 - 180 = 160

      . . . .  160 / 20  =  $8 per child per day
