Relevant Range _____ A. A method for analyzing cost behavior in which each account is classified as either variable or fixed based on the analyst’s prior knowledge of how the cost in the account behaves. B. Sales Revenue – Variable Expenses C. The range of activity within which assumptions about variable and fixed cost behavior are valid. D. A cost that contains both fixed and variable costs. E.

A measure of whatever causes the incurrence of a variable cost. G. The cost of a resource that is obtainable only in very large chunks and that increases and decreases only in response to fairly wide changes in activity. H.

An income statement format that is geared to cost behavior in that costs are separated into variable and fixed categories rather than being separated according to the functions of production, sales, and administrative. J. A method of separating a mixed cost into its fixed and variable elements by fitting a regression line that minimizes the sum of the squared errors. K.
