Where: P = profits,
SP = sales price per unit,
VC = variable cost per unit (manufacturing and non-manufacturing),
Q = number of units made and sold
FC = total fixed costs (manufacturing and non-manufacturing).

SP – VC is the unit contribution margin (UCM)
Q x (SP – VC) is the total contribution margin. (TCM)
TCM ÷ sales is the contribution margin ratio. (CMR)
Breakeven Point: in units = FC ÷ UCM; in sales dollars = FC ÷ CMR"
