Now, to find the profit or loss, subtract the total cost from the total revenue: $18,000 (Total revenue) - $15,750 (Total cost) = $2,250 So, the company's profit on the sale of 2,250 units is $2,250.

Cool. Moving on....

Kind of? It's either the same thing or it is not.

Just answer the questions posted and keep your text math-related.

Isn't that what I did? Did I do something different?

You've done all the hard work.

Profit = total sales money minus total costs.

Bob

Profit = $18,000 - $15,750

Profit = $2250

Yes?

Also 2250 units at $7 each = $15, 750.

The company's profit or loss is the confusing part for me.

why not?

the 18000 is revenue or income

the 15750 is cost or outgo

profit is what is left after subtracting cost/outgo from revenue/income

so 18000 - 15750 is the right subtraction

In that case the profit is $2250.

So, 1,500 units at $9 each = $13,500.

Also, 750 units at $6 each = $4,500.

This together = $18,000.Also 2250 units at $7 each = $15, 750.

Must I add $18,000 and $15,750 to show the company's profit?

Stuck here....
