You sell 100 units at $100; with a cost per unit of $80.
Your revenue = $10,000
Your profit = $10,000 – $8,000 = $2,000
What if you give away a 10% discount? Then you sell 100 units at $90; with a cost per unit of $80.
Your revenue = $9,000
Your profit = $9,000 – $8,000 = $1,000
You have to sell 200 units at the discounted price of $90 to continue to make the same profit of $2,000.
Your revenue = $18,000
