Since all of the above are constants, it really would be better
to use Set rather than SetDelayed. That is doing:

feepercontract = .75;

pricepercontract = .73;
totalcost = 8484;

Note, I omitted numbercontracts:=x since this isn't needed. In
fact, Solve isn't needed since you've already done the work
Solve would do, i.e.,

In[32]:= Floor[(totalcost -
feepercontract)]

Out[32]= 114

Here, I've used the Floor function since your table suggest you
only want the integer portion of the solution.

To create your table use Table. That is:

TableForm[
Table[{pricepercontract,
feepercontract)]}, {pricepercontract, .73, .84, .01}],
TableHeadings -> {None, {"Price/Contract", "No Contracts"}}]

will create a nicely formatted table. The function Table does
the actual computations. The function TableForm simply formats
the output in a nice fashion.
