awellman doesn't the last one say the same thing as A?
bluefin209 Average cost/revenue is definitely different that total cost/revenue. Look at the definitions for clarification.
bluefin209 I also thought that the break-even point is when marginal cost=average total cost.
odette Breakeven point equals normal profit which is TC-TR
MFTIOA P*Q = MR*Q = ATC*Q = TC = TR
azramirza MFTIO, Can u highlight how MR=ATC...
JepTang This is to answer bluefin209's question. At the point where MC=ATC that is the point where ATC is at its minimum, if you can remember the lecture from the SS5. It is not necessarily the break even point as it those graphs will only tell you whether a firm can produce more quantity and still make profit from those marginal quantity produced.
Oksanata I do not agree with Odette, I would say that Profit = TR-TC, where TC includes opportunity costs. Normal profit is when TR=TC, i.e. firm is not able to make economic profit, and this is break-even point, i.e. A is correct.
geofin "In the case of perfect competition, the breakeven point is the quantity where price, average revenue, and marginal revenue equal average total cost. It is also defined as the quantity where total revenue equals total costs."
