BREAK EVEN ANALYSISBreak even analysis is mainly used to explain the relationship between the cost incurred, the volume operated at and the profit earned. To compute the breakeven point we let
S be selling price per unitV_{u} be variable cost per unitQ be break-even quantitiesF be total fixed costsAt Breakeven point:
Total revenue (TR) = Total Cost (TC)
Total revenue will be given by SQ while Total cost (TC) = V_{u} Q + F
At break-even point (BEP) therefore:
SQ = V_{u} Q + FQ = F S- V_{u}B.E.P (in units) = F S- V_{u}
