2 High-Low Method Example : Let total costs at 500 units of output be \$150,000 and at 3,000 units of output be \$400,000. Calculate variable and fixed costs, respectively. High-Low Method Solution: High Low Change Costs: \$400,000 \$150,000 \$250,000 Units: 3,000 500 2,500 Calculate Variable Cost Per Unit : \$250,000/2,500 = \$100 Calculate Total Fixed Costs: \$400,000 – (3,000 x 100) = \$100,000 Relevant Range
3 Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis 1. The Profit Equation 2. Breakeven Point 3. Margin of Safety 4. Contribution Margin 5. Contribution Margin Ratio 6. What-if Analysis The Profit Equation Profit = SP(x) –VC(x) – TFC X = Quantity of units produced and sold SP = Selling price per unit VC = Variable cost per unit
