    (1) I would first explain the nonlinear cost functions. Before we do that, I think we should first understand what linear cost function is. A linear cost function has a general form:
    y = ax + b
    where y is cost and x is the cost driver. This type of classification of cost is most commonly seen in activity-cost accounting. In activity-cost accounting system, y is the ...
