Overview
Marginal revenue is the amount earned by a company when they sell an additional unit of products. There is always a marginal cost attached to it, which should be accounted for in financial analysis. The formula for calculating marginal revenue is: Marginal Revenue = Change in Revenue / Change in Quantity The concept can be further examined using a curve. When we graph the marginal revenue using quantity as the x-axis and price as the y-axis, we would expect the curve to slope downwards. This is explained by the law of diminishing margin, which states that as a company sells more products over the normal limit, the price of its products would also need to go down to drive demand (quantity).
