37,488

284,398

38,289

Each doubling in quantity will result in a reduction in the unit cost by the same percentage.

Each repetition (or unit produced) will cost less than the prior repetition (or unit produced) by the same amount.

Each doubling in quantity will result in a reduction in the unit cost by the same amount.
