Calculates the profit and solves for breakeven values.

fc: Fixed costs.

vc: Variable cost per unit.

p: Unit price.

q: quantity.

For a

- fixed cost of 3000
- variable cost per unit of 15
- price of 20
- quantity sold of 500

Calculate the profit

Value | Keystrokes | Display | Description |
---|---|---|---|

3000 | fc | 3000.00 | Stores the fixed cost value. |

15 | vc | 15.00 | Stores the variable costs. |

20 | p | 20.00 | Stores the unit price. |

500 | q | 500.00 | Stores the quantity. |

pft | -500.00 | Calculates profit. |

Find the breakeven quantity for example 1.

Setting profit to 0 allows you to solve for the breakeven quantity. You can also solve for the other breakeven values.

These keystrokes assume the values from example 1.

Value | Keystrokes | Display | Description |
---|---|---|---|

0 | pft | 0.00 | Stores the pft value. |

q | 600 | Calculates the quantity. |
