PRICING RELATED CALCULATIONS COMM 224 –DR. K. BUYUKKURT A) COST-PLUS PRICING (MARKUP PRICING) Cost-plus, also called markup pricing, involves simply adding a standard markup to the unit cost of the product. The markup is usually defined as a percentage of the price. In such cases, ) 1 ( _ MARKUP COST UNIT PRICE - = . Assume that the total unit cost of your product is $16, and you want to determine your price such that you will have a markup (profit) of 20 percent. So, what should your price be? 20 $ ) 2 . 0 1 ( 16 $ = - = PRICE Sometimes you may need to compute the unit cost for your product by taking into account your total fixed costs and variable cost per unit. See Slide 10 of Class Notes for Chapter 11 for an example. C) BREAK-EVEN VOLUME: By definition, at break even total revenue (TR) equals total cost (TC). That is TR = TC We also know that total cost is simply the sum of total fixed cost (TFC) and total variable cost (TVC). So, TR = TFC + TVC= TFC + (VC x Q) Where VC is variable cost per unit and Q is the total volume (number of units that are produced and sold).

    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.
