COST, REVENUE, & PROFIT FUNCTIONS Cost: C(x) = Variable Cost + Fixed Cost C(x) = mx + b (linear cost function) fixed Marginal Cost (cost/unit) Revenue: net sales R(x) = Price per unit × unit ( = mx) Profit = Revenue Cost P(x) = R(x) C(x) BREAK EVEN: P(x) = 0 or R(x) = C(x)
The cost to manufacture t-shirts is C(x) = 8x +100, and the revenue obtained by manufacturing the t-shirts is R(x) = 10x. What is the daily profit? P(x) = R(x) C(x)

The annual operating cost of a gym is to be estimated to be C(x) = 100,000 +160x – 0.2x 2 dollars (0 ≤ x ≤ 400), where x is the number of members. The annual revenue is \$800 per member. Variable Cost? Fixed Cost? Profit? How many members must the gym have to make a profit?

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
