### Company's Profit or Loss

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?

### Re: Company's Profit or Loss

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.
