In the revenue function, the price per unit is the slope. In the cost function, the cost per unit is the slope. When graphed, these lines will intersect. The point of intersection is called the break-even point . The x -coordinate will be the number of units of the product and the y -coordinate will be the amount of money coming in from sells and the amount of money going out for costs.
