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:

                                       Suits sold

                                       (per hour)           Price

                                                1                 $31.50

                                                2                   28.50

                                                3                   25.50

                                                4                   22.50

                                                5                   19.50

                                                6                   16.50

                                                7                   13.50

                                                8                   10.50

                                                9                     7.50

                                              10                     4.50
