Break Even

Author: Matt Cox
  • For students to understand the three different methods of break even
  • Students to build on their knowledge of costs, revenues and profits to construct graphs of data
  • Students to analyze what causes the lines in a Break Even diagram to move and for a Break Even output to either increase or decrease.

A brief introduction in how and why businesses calculate the break even output with a guide through the three methods used.  I also use the graph part of the lesson to show some situation where the break even output may change when some of the variables for our business change.
