In this lesson, you will learn how to use Solver to solve a linear profit function. By setting the profit equation to zero and filling in known values for fixed cost, unit cost, and profit, you can easily find the wholesale price needed to make a desired profit. Solver is a great tool for answering multiple questions related to a linear profit model, as it requires knowing only four of the five variables to solve for the remaining one.
Handle situations involving a Linear Profit model (which includes Linear Revenue and Linear Cost). Handle means interpret the situation in order to solve for the input (quantity), output (profit), or any of the parameters (unit/marginal cost, unit/marginal price, fixed cost), whatever is missing.
