Unformatted text preview: dollars or cost dollars,CforAexample). We plotAvolume N E on H PTERS IN P RT O the horizontal axis (number of prints sold per month or sales dollars, for example). The total revenue (TR) line relates total revenue to volume (for example, if U-Develop sells 1 Making Yourself Successful in College 12,000 prints in a month, its total revenue would be \$7,200, according to the graph). The slope of TR is the price per unit, P (for example, \$.60 per print for U-Develop). The total cost (TC) line shows the total cost for each volume. For example, the total cost 2 Approaching College Reading and for a volume of 12,000 prints is \$5,820 ( [12,000 \$.36] \$1,500). The intercept of the total cost line is the ﬁxed cost for the period, FDeveloping a is the variable cost per unit, V , and the slope College-Level Vocabulary . The break-even point is the volume at which TR TC (that is, where the TR and TC lines intersect). Volumes lower than break even result in an College Assignments:TR 3 Approaching operating loss because TC; volumes higher than break even result in an operating proﬁt because TR TC. For Reading Textbooks and Following Directions U-Develop, 6,250 prints is the break-even volume. Self-Study Question 1.

For example, the vertical distance between TR and TC when X 12,000 indicates Proﬁt \$1,380 ( \$7,200 \$5,820). Proﬁt-Volume Model Instead of considering revenues and costs separately, we can analyze the relation between proﬁt and volume directly. This approach to CVP...
