your profit P is determine by subtracting the cost C(the amount of money it costs to operate a business) from the revenue R(the amount of money you earn from selling your product). profit can be represented algebraically by the equation:
Profit=Revenue-Cost or P=R-C.
Rewrite the formula to solve for C.
Thank you.

• Math -

C=P-R

• Math -

Profit=Revenue-Cost
P=R-C

implies

Cost = Revenue - Profit
C = R - P

There is probably a typo in the previous post.
