Break-Even Analysis (1.2) |
Handouts: What's the Difference?
Revenue, Cost, Profit
Slopes and Linear Functions
Today's objectives:
1. Perform a break-even analysis:
a. Use the graph or formula of Revenue, Cost, or Profit
to determine the break-even quantity (or quantities).
b. Determine the amount of Revenue or Cost at a
break-even quantity.
2. Use graphs to determine the production level when a company will maximize
Revenue or maximize Profit.
3. Interpret the slope and y-intercept of a linear function if it
represents Cost, Revenue, or Profit.

Supply and Demand (1.2) |
Handouts: Slopes and Linear Functions
Supply and Demand
Today's objectives:
1. Find and interpret the slope and axis intercepts of a linear demand
function.
2. Find the formula of a cost function from a graph with a grid (without
given the y-intercept).
3. Find marginal cost, marginal revenue, and marginal profit from a formula
or graph.
4. Determine the equilibrium quantity if given the formulas or graphs of the
supply and demand.
Find if the market has a consumer surplus (like
this)
or shortage (like
this) and how it affects the price.
