Revenue refers to the income derived by a producer or firm from business activities or from the sale of his or its products.

                                          TYPES OF REVENUE           

  1. TOTA REVENUE (TR): This refers to the total income which a firm derives from the sale of its products.

Total Revenue = Price x Quantity (TR = PxQ)

  1. AVERAGE REVENUE (A.R): The average revenue is the same as the price per unit of the commodity.  It is derived by dividing the total revenue by the total unit of the commodity sold.

  1. Marginal revenue: This is the additional income earned by selling an extra unit of a commodity.
