Updated: Oct 15

**How to study Calculus in Commerce and Economics for Class 12?**

Applications of Calculus in Commerce and Economics is an easy chapter which involves a basic knowledge of Differential and Integral Calculus. Here's giving you a basic idea of the topics needed to go about learning this chapter.

You can also join my online tutoring classes where I'll be discussing each of these in detail. You start with learning about fixed cost and variable cost. Fixed costs are those which are incurred regardless of the production, for example, internet costs, rent to mention a few.

**What are fixed costs and variable costs?**

Variable costs are those which vary with output. For example, daily wages, raw material etc. Total cost is the sum of the fixed cost and variable cost. Next, you have the Average cost which is the total cost divided by the number of units.

__Question on Average and Total Cost__

**What are break even points?**

Note that break even point is when the total cost equals the total expenditure. Learn about the revenue function, average revenue and Marginal revenue. Average revenue is the total revenue divided by the number of units. Marginal revenue is the derivative of the revenue function with respect to x.

**How is Marginal Revenue and Marginal Cost calculated?**

** **

You also have the Marginal average revenue which is the derivative of the average revenue function.

Likewise, you also have the Marginal cost which is the derivative of the total cost and the marginal average cost which is the derivative of the average revenue function. Given the marginal cost, you can integrate it to get the total cost. Similarly integrating the marginal revenue gives you the total revenue. Here is Calculus in Commerce and Economics for Class 12.
