Brief Exercise 5-1  (15 minutes) 1. Cups of Coffee Served  in a Week 1,800 1,900 2,000 Fixed cost $1,100 $1,100 $1,100 Variable cost         468             494             520     Total cost $1,568 $1,594 $1,620 Cost per cup of coffee served * $0.871 $0.839 $0.810 * Total cost  ÷  cups of coffee served in a week 2. The average cost of a cup of coffee declines as the number of  cups of coffee served increases because the fixed cost is spread  over more cups of coffee.

Brief Exercise 5-2  (continued) 2. (Students’ answers will vary considerably due to the inherent  imprecision and subjectivity of the quick-and-dirty scattergraph  method of estimating variable and fixed costs.)  The approximate monthly fixed cost is $6,000—the point where the  straight line intersects the cost axis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
