Unformatted text preview: The degree of operating leverage (DOL) is a measure of the sensitivity of profit changes to changes in sales volume. DOL measures the percentage of change in profit that results from a percentage of change in sales. Degree of operating leverage = Contribution marginIOperating income The higher the degree of operating leverage, the greater the change in profit when sales change. Percentage change in profit = DOL x Percentage change in sales C. Sensitivity Analysis and CVP Sensitivity analysis is a “what if“ technique that examines the impact of changes on an answer. For example, computer spreadsheets are used to analyze changes in prices, variable costs, and fixed costs on expected profits. Practice 1. The Redfish Company sells a product for $16. Unit costs are as follows: Direct Material $3.9 Direct Labor 1.40 Variable overhead 2.10 Variable selling expense 1.60 Total fixed overhead is $52,000 per year. and total fixed selling and administrative expenses are $372950. Required: a. Calculate variable ratio and contribution margin ratio w I; ,\ A l\‘ 2. Sweet Things, Inc. had the following results for the yearjust ended: Sales (60,000 units) $120,000 Direct labor 6,000 Direct materials 18,000 Fixed manufacturing overhead 50,000 Variable selling expenses 6,000 Fixed administrative expenses 10 000 Net income 3 00 What is the company's breakeven sales voiume? 3, The amount that is available to be cover fixed costs after deducting variable expenses from sales is called the: a. target profit b. breakeven point on; margin of safety @\.I>contribution margin 4. The breakeven point is the point at which the total contribution margin is equal to: a. sales revenues b. variable costs 'T.\ fixed costs d, total costs 5.
