ColonelCFA So we ignore the existence of fixed costs?
lighty0770 agree with colonelCFA. Without knowing what fixed costs are we cannot tell
FFalas I also got it wrong. Wording should be better "receives 10 per pizza" i guess was intended to imply that her MR is 10$ (a benefit, hence net of Fixed costs)
