After how many streams will you pay for the distributor charges? (Hint: this is where the line crosses the x-axis, round to the nearest thousand)2.) How many streams would it take to profit $750,000? (Hint: Remember one unit = one thousand streams)3.) In 2020, Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny claimed the top spot of most streamed artist globally on SPOTIFY, with more than 8.3 billion streams (8,300,000,000) this year from fans around the globe. His album YHLQMDLG—released in late February 2020, featuring collaborations with Sech, Anuel AA, and Daddy Yankee—is the number one streamed album as well. Calculate the profit earned using these numbers. (Hint: Use the slope intercept format to build this equation. Also, remember one unit = one thousand streams).
