By setting off the costs against the revenues, you can calculate an operating profit for the individual market segments that are defined by a combination of classifying characteristics（特征值） (such as product group,customer group, country, or distribution channel).
“By setting off the costs against the revenue”，不明白这句如何翻译，Google给出的译句是：“通过降低收入的成本”，看得我仍然不明白。
