**Chol**, Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 3:42pm(a) R = 15p

(b) C = 55 + 4p

(c) Revenue [5*15]= $75

Variable cost [5*4]= $20

contribution 55

fixed cost -55

Net profit. 0

(d) 15p = 55 + 4p

11p = 55

p = 5 pizzas break-even

Profit = revenue - cost

15(500)-4(500)-55 = $5445

Sell 500 pizzas $5445

(e) profit = 15p -55-4p

1100 = 11p -55

1155 = 11p

p = 105

Sell 105 pizzas $1100

(f) 1595 = 11p -55

1650 = 11p

p = 150

Sell 150 pizzas make $1595
