New Source Performance Standards Game
Your earnings are determined in the following manner:
earnings = (price offered × quantity sold) - total cost of units sold
Note: the buyers could buy less units than the number of units offered when the price is too high or when there are not enough buyers in the market. If this happens, you will only incur the cost of the units that you actually sell, not the costs of the units that you offered.
Example: suppose you have four "units" to sell and that your production costs are
If you select a price of $5.75 and you sell 4 "units", then your earnings are:
($5.75 × 4) -$3.30 - $3.10 - $2.90 - $2.70 = $11.00.
If you select a price of $2.85 and offer to sell 4 units but only sell 3
units, then your
$2.85 *3 - $2.70 - $2.90 - $3.1- = -$0.55, i.e. a loss of 75 cents.
