    This assignment needs to deal with the McDonald's Corporation.

    Identify any activity in the organization where you can apply breakeven analysis. You must be able to define:

    * A unit of measurement for the activity
    * Revenue per unit for the activity
    * Variable costs for the activity
    * Fixed costs for the period in the activity

    If you cannot identify specific actual amounts, make a reasonable estimate (and indicate the method or source of information for that estimate) and apply the tool as if the data were factual.


    Your report should include

    * The name and nature of the organization
    * The activity and time period you used
    * The inputs you used and the source for those inputs
    * Your results
    * Any implications from your results

    In other words, you must do a break-even analysis using the numerical calculations.

    Assignment Expectations:

    The submission needs to include the break-even analysis in a tabular format as well as a discussion interpreting the analysis. Answer all questions and include references in APA format.
