    okay so x= producing units you have to find cost if `NO` units are produced so x would be what ?

    I know the answer. It is overall 300 but I want to know if this is a trick question because if you use logic the cost would be 0 because you are making nothing

    I don't think it's a trick question. You need to pay rent, electricity, and employee benefits even if you don't manufacture anything.
