    Dude, I understand your enthusiasm and what not, but calm down.

    My suggestion is to create a thread with all your questions listed systematically so that members can easily help you out. Spamming topics all over the forum isn't going to stand you in good stead with many of the members here.

    Fixed costs are costs that stay the same regardless of the number of units you are producing. E.g. Depreciation, the factory foreman's salary, etc.

    Variable costs are costs that increase as the number of units you produce increase. An example of this might be Water & Electricity. (The more you produce, the more your machinery etc. gets used and hence the higher your electricity bill)

    Hope that helps.
