Isn’t that a net of 0? Break even Analysis-puts TC and TR together to determine profitability at different output levels -BEP (break even point) = Fixed cost/price - variable cost = quantity you must sell to break even-P = [fixed cost + (variable cost x quantity)]/quantity o Algebraic manipulation of BEP equation---how did he get this equation?-Example:...
