Profit = TR - TC

TC = Total cost

TC = TFC + TVC

TFC = Total fixed cost TVC = Total variable cost

ATC = Average total cost

ATC = AFC + AVC

AFC = Average fixed cost AVC = Average variable cost

ATC = TC/Q

TC = Total cost Q = Quantity

AVC = Average variable cost

AVC = VC/Q

VC = Variable cost Q = Quantity

AFC = Average fixed cost FC = Fixed cost

AFC = FC/Q

Q = Quantity
