The manufacturer of a certain item can sell all he can produce at the selling price of Rs 60 each. It costs him Rs 40 in materials and labour to produce each item and he has overhead expenses of Rs 3000 per week in order to operate the plant. The number of units he should produce and sell in order to make a profit of at least Rs 1000 per week, is: (A) 200 (B) 250 (C) 300 (D) 400

Suppose, the manufacturer must produce x items

Then,

C.P. = Rs (40 + 3000)

S.P. = Rs 60x

Therefore,

60x – (40x + 3000) = 1000

60x – 40x – 3000 = 1000

20x = 1000 + 3000

20x = 4000

x = 4000/20

We get,

x = 200

Hence, the correct option is (A)
