Here's a start  not sure about the formula. Repost so someone answeres. $0.0002 x = $5 > You can produce the original 9,600 bottles and an additional 25,000 before your profit deminishes to zero. Not sure what the formula would be to calculate the total value  you can't numerate for 9600 bottles...that's insane. So you would get an initial (9,600 x $5) then add on for each additional bottle produced +(1 x $4.9998) + (1 x $4.9996)....not sure how you would do this. Then, assume there are 12 bottles/case so (9600+25,000) / 12 = no. of cases. Then get your cost from the 1st part and divide by the number of cases.
