This tool calculates the total cost based on your linear cost function inputs.

## How to Use the Linear Cost Function Calculator

To use this calculator, input the following values:

**Fixed Cost (FC):**The fixed costs that do not change with the level of production.**Variable Cost (VC):**The cost per unit of production.**Quantity (Q):**The number of units produced.**Price per unit (P):**The selling price per unit.

Once you fill all the fields, click the “Calculate” button to see the results of total cost and total revenue.

## How It Calculates the Results

The formula used for calculation is:

**Total Cost (TC):**FC + (VC × Q)**Total Revenue (TR):**P × Q

The result displayed will show both the total cost and total revenue calculated based on your inputs.

## Calculator Limitations

This calculator assumes linear relationships and does not account for nonlinear factors or external market conditions. It is meant for basic cost and revenue computations and may not be suitable for complex financial analysis.
