It follows that his fixed cost is? and his net profit per unit produced is?

**Reiny**, Thursday, January 27, 2011 at 9:23pmTreat your information as 2 ordered pairs of the form

(x,p) where x is the number of units, and p is the profit.

So you have (8500, 47600) and (11500, 65600)

slope = (65600-47600)/(11500-8500) = 6

so your equation in the form y = mx + b is

p = 6x + b

sub in the first point

47600 = 6(8500) + b

b = -3400

p = 6x - 3400

Can you interpret this equation?

e.g. What is his "profit" if he makes zero units ?

**Mark**, Friday, January 28, 2011 at 3:03pmI got that far. But I still do not know how to find the fixed cost and net profit from the p(x) equation.
