Calculate the average cost, Cost Accounting

Seventeen new bathing suit stores enter the Santa Barbara market, joining the seven that already existed. As a consequence, the demand schedule facing Swim N Style (and all other stores) falls, while the cost schedules remain constant as in Problem 1:

                                                2                   28.50

                                                3                   25.50

                                                4                   22.50
