# The Profit Equation for Computer Accessories

## Profit Calculation for Computer Accessories

The price that a company charged for a computer accessory is given by the equation **mc013-1.jpg**, where x is the number of accessories that are produced, in millions. It costs the company $10 to make each accessory. The company currently produces 2 million accessories and makes a profit of $100 million dollars.

## Finding the Number of Accessories

Let's set up the equation for profit:

Profit = Revenue - Cost

Profit = Price * Quantity - Cost * Quantity

Profit = (mc013-1.jpg) * 2 - $10 * 2

Profit = ($20 million) - ($20 million)

Profit = $100 million

Now, we need to find out what other number of accessories produced yields approximately the same profit.

## Finding the Number of Accessories for the Same Profit

Since the profit is $100 million for 2 million accessories, we need to find the number of accessories that would result in the same profit.

Let x be the number of accessories produced.

Profit = (mc013-1.jpg) * x - $10 * x

$100 million = (mc013-1.jpg) * x - $10x

MC013-1.jpg = $110 - $10 = $100

MC013-1.jpg = $110/x

x = 45 million accessories

Therefore, the number of accessories that yields approximately the same profit is **45 million**.
