Minimum sales of PVC pipes should be 1500.

Step-by-step explanation:

Monthly profit from the sale of PVC pipe can be described as P(x) = 6.45x - 9675

Here x = number of PVC pipes sold.

To avoid the loss means there is no profit but with no loss.

So by putting p(x) = 0

0 = 6.45x - 9675

6.45x = 9675

= 1500

Therefore,to avoid the loss minimum number of pipes sold should be 1500.
