I assume this means the delivery service charges $8.30 per package, but costs them $1.30 on their end, so that's a profit of $7 each package. So, divide the cost to run the truck each day ($175) by the profit of the package ($7) and you'll get 25 packages. So, that's 25 packages each day to break even, per truck. Unless I'm missing something.
