a. Continue operating price is higher than average cost, its making a profit

Explanation:

In the long run, a company should only continue to operate if its price per unit is greater than total costs per unit.

In this case, total costs per unit are \$65, while the selling price per unit is \$70.

Since \$70 > \$65, then the company should continue operating since it is making a profit.

The answer is a. Continue operating price is higher than average cost, its making a profit.
