Company X sold 1,500 units of its product for $9 each and 750 units for $6 each. If the company's cost of producing each unit of the product was $7, what was the company's profit or loss on the sale of 2,250 units?

Let me see.

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.

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

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

Stuck here....

You've done all the hard work.

Profit = total sales money minus total costs.

profit is income less outgo

profit is revenue minus costs

so subtract

Subtract what? It cannot be 18,000 - 15,750, right?

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.

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

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

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.
