    Oh, my! You need an English course more than an accounting class.

    Your post is nearly impossible to read because:

    1. It's in all caps.
    2. You've used NO punctuation.
    3. The reader can't tell where sentences begin and end.

    Cost per unit remains the same.
    Seriously, consider English classes.
