•Follow the following 5 step process. SHOW YOUR WORK.

–1. Calculate the number of cups/pitcher you can serve. ROUND UP to the nearest whole number.

–2.  Calculate the number of lemons, cups of sugar, and cups you’ll need to buy.

–3. Look at the quantity pricing for each item and add up the cost to purchase your supplies.

–4. Look at your costs. For every $1.00 of cost, how much is Cups? Sugar? Lemons? Ice?

–5. Calculate your cost and revenue per cup (revenue should be price per cup).  How did changing         ingredients/quantity purchases affect your unit costs?
