What is revenue?
Revenue is the income earned by a business over a period of time, eg one month. The amount of revenue earned depends on two things - the number of items sold and their selling price. In short, revenue = price x quantity

What is cost?
Costs are the expenses involved in making a product. Firms incur costs by trading.

What is profit?
Profit is the money left over when all other expenses have been paid. Profit = total revenue - total costs.

What is loss?
A loss is made when the revenue from sales is not enough to cover all the costs of production. For example, if a company has a total revenue of £60,000 and a total cost of £90,000, then they have lost £30,000 from trading.
