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
