Hi

I need help with this homework assignment. Thanks.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ A note on this homework:
Some of the problems are fill-in-the-blank, where you must type your numerical answer. For
these problems, be sure to enter in numbers only. You can enter in decimal places if needed.
However, do NOT put in dollar signs, commas, or units. Just enter the number. Example:
A firm sells 600 units at a price of \$3 each. What is the Total Revenue received by the firm?
Correct: Type in 1800
Incorrect: Type in 1,800
Incorrect: Type in \$1800
