Out of the $500 charged per person, the organization deposits $125 andthe hotel charges $295.
Amount per person for the organization to recover the fixed cost of $20000
= $(500 - 125 - $295)
Number of registrants necessary for the organization to recover the fixed costof $20000

In above, "$(500 - 125 - $295)" should be "$(500 - 125 - 295)".

Alternative method :
Let n be the number of registrants required.
(500 - 125 - 295)n = 20000
80n = 20000
n = 250
Hence, number of registrants required = 250資料來源： andrew, andrew
