Unformatted text preview: t equation to explicitly include volume, allowing us to analyze the relations among volume, costs, and profit. Total revenue (TRand Organizing price per Preparing ) equals average selling Yourself unit (P) times the units of output (X): Total revenue for Success in College Units of output produced and sold Price TR PX In our profit equation, total costs (TC) may be divided into a fixed component that does not vary with changes in output levels and a variable component that does vary. The fixed component is made up of total fixed costs (F) per period; the variable component is the product of the average variable cost per unit (V) multiplied by the quantity of output (X). Therefore, the cost function is Total costs (Variable costs per unit TC VX Units of output) Fixed costs F HAPT RS PART Substituting the expanded expressions in the profitCequationE yieldsI aN form more O N E useful for analyzing decisions: Making Yourself Total1revenue Total costs Successful in College Profit TR TC VX 2 F Approaching College Reading and Developing a College-Level Vocabulary TC Therefore, Profit 3PX Approaching College Assignments: (VX F) Reading Textbooks and Following Directions Collecting terms gives Profit (Price (P unit contribution margin Difference between revenues per unit (price) and variable cost per unit. total contribution margin Difference between revenues and total variable costs.
