Could someone please explain the equation which is used for profit?

• Algebra -

Profits=income-costs

There are hundreds of "formulas" for profit.

• Algebra -

Profit = Revenue - Cost

Suppose you have a lemonade stand.

It costs you 10 cents to make a glass of lemonade. You charge each customer 25 cents a glass. Therefore your profit is 15 cents per glass.

15 = 25 - 10
