For the break even formula we need fixed costs to be divided to contribution(selling price less variable costs)
From a you can possible fill most of the gaps and come to the answer

Why do we need break even though if there’s a desired profit margin of 25%?

Profit margin is your gross profit, this is the formula sales less cost of sales (variable and fixed production costs) in this case 25%margin 75% cost of sales 100% sales
I can't still come to an answer as I can't see all figures
I will try when I get back home
