    A firm has the capacity to produce 1,000,000 units of a product each year. At present, it is operating at 70 percent of capacity. The firm's annual revenue is $700,000. Annual fixed costs are $300,000, and the variable costs are $0.50 per unit. The following equations will be useful.
    Profit = Revenue - Costs
    Revenue = Price each * quantity

    b. What is the price for each unit?
    c. At what volume of sales does the firm break even?
    d. What will be the profit or loss if the plant runs at 90 percent of capacity?
